2013 NFL Roster Cuts: The Atlanta Falcons 53 Following The Deadline

Subject to change thanks to waivers and free agency.

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons have decided on a 53 man roster. The makeup of the roster could change within 24 hours, with the Falcons picking over the waiver wire, but this is where we stand.

Let's break it down, with a couple of quick observations.

  • The Falcons could keep six backs, but it seems unlikely. There may be another move in the offing.
  • Terren Jones was lousy this preseason, but he's absolutely massive and has a ton of potential. The Falcons may have thought they would lose him if they didn't keep him, or they may be working on adding another tackle.
  • Paul Worrilow and Joplo Bartu were two of the most impressive rookies, period. I'm thrilled that both made it.
  • Robert James is gone, so that's one roster bogeyman down. The newest? Probably Dominique Franks, but keep in mind that he can play special teams and has the size to split time between safety and cornerback.
  • Speaking of safety, the Falcons kept three reserves. Wow.
