Atlanta Falcons Release Dan Klecko

That didn't take long, did it? Dan Klecko is the first of many to pack his bags for less Falconly pastures, after the team cut him loose Friday.

I thought this was a nice, low-risk signing from the beginning, and it's easy to move on now that it hasn't borne fruit. Klecko has a lot of positional versatility—he can play fullback and along the defensive line—but it became evident that he can no longer do either one particularly well. At some point, the ability to play multiple positions is not worth the risk that you'll blow plays on both sides of the ball.

Ovie Mughelli is of course locked in as the starting fullback, and Jason Snelling is probably our emergency option.

So farewell, Dan Klecko. Any thoughts, readers?
