Falcons Cut Roster to 75

Today, the Atlanta Falcons waived or released the following players reducing their roster to 75 players before the August 30th deadline:

  • Safety Sergio Brown (released)
  • Offensive Lineman Michael Huey
  • Running Back Gus Johnson
  • Wide Receiver Jordan Leslie
  • Tight End Arthur Lynch
  • Linebacker Ivan McLennan
  • Quarterback Sean Renfree
  • Cornerback Ryan White
  • Defensive Lineman Brandon Williams

“We were really comfortable with the players that we brought in here,” Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “I think it’s a really deep and competitive group. Like we’ve said time and again, Dan is the best that I’ve been around at bringing the most competitiveness out of these players. So, I think it’s been very impressive at many levels.”

All 32 NFL teams must reduce their squad to 53 players by 4:00pm Saturday, September 3, 2016. Atlanta’s final preseason game is against the Jacksonville Jaguars, with kickoff at 7:00pm at the Georgia Dome Thursday evening. Falcons Head Coach Dan Quinn released the depth chart today.
