Seattle Seahawks Sign Atlanta DT Travian Robertson Away From Falcons

After adding an obscene amount of defensive tackles in the offseason, the Falcons were forced to push guys like Travian Robertson down to the practice squad. Another team has pounced on our behemoth defensive tackle and signed him to their active roster.

He is gone... and there is nothing we can do about it.

UPDATE: From the man himself:

During the offseason, Travian Robertson was looking like he might have a shot at some real playing time. The third-year pro became a player fans were expecting to see a lot of. Remember this?

The 6-foot-4, 304-pound defensive tackle got only Antone-esque snaps in his first two seasons, before ending up on the team's 2014 practice squad.

Now he is part of the Super Bowl champs roster, based on the twitter account an unverified user who lists #92 (Robertson's number) as her husband.

The Seattle Seahawks, looking to replace run plugger Brandon Mebane, appear to have signed the former 7th rounder to replace him.

Best of luck to Robertson, who should be given a chance to earn snaps early and often in the NFC West. The only thing that could make me feel a bit better is if the team adds Geraldo "Amsterdam" Boldewijn to the open practice squad spot, as he's definitely a fan favorite.

Your thoughts on the move?
