The Atlanta Falcons 53 Man Roster Open Thread

UPDATE: The Falcons released Bear Woods, Jose Valdez and Rafael Bush. All three are believed to have invitations to the practice squad.

 

The deadline to cut down to the final 53 man roster is at 6 p.m. today.

Along the way, a lot of pre-season Falcons are going to have to get the boot. Use this thread to predict, mull and pontificate on the cuts before they happen, and perhaps to put forth your own preferred final roster. For the record, I'm sticking with my picks outside of a couple quick changes to the practice squad, which I'll reproduce after the jump.

I'll be off and on the computer all day, but I'll have a cuts wrapup by the end of it. In the meantime, if you guys can write front-page worthy FanPosts about the rounds of cuts, I'll pop 'em up.

Enjoy!
