While some teams jettison six players at once, the Falcons are taking the gentlemanly approach. Every good executioner should take the time to lavish individual attention on those facing the axe. It's the proper way to do things.
Anyways, unsurprisingly Eric Brock did not beat out Shann Schillinger for the last safety spot on the Falcons. Brock has been an on-again, off-again member of the Falcons for a while now, and he did nothing but offer solid special teams value and a little average play in the time he was here. Unfortunately for him, Schillinger caught fire in the pre-season and Brock is on his way to free agency land again.
I will, however, bet you a significant amount of Monopoly money that he'll be back with the team next time there's an injury in the secondary.
