Falcons Release CB Von Hutchins, TE Ben Hartsock

Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to really flesh this out at the moment, but I wanted to deliver this news as fast as possible.

The Falcons released Ben Hartsock, our best blocking tight end, along with cornerback Von Hutchins and defensive end Willie Evans. I don't need to tell you that Hartsock's release is a huge surprise, and must indicate that Tony Gonzalez and Justin Peelle have shown a lot as blockers this off-season. With the acquisition of Tye Hill, the Falcons are announcing a complete and total youth movement at cornerback by releasing Hutchins, who was kind of off everybody's radar this off-season. Evans was not expected to make the roster.

Kind of a surprise all the way around, though. What do you guys think?
