The Falcons are starting the long and arduous process of trimming down their roster, starting with a pair of longshots.
The Falcons have waived TE Andrew Szczerba and P Matt Yoklic today: http://t.co/zEa7NElpUt— Atlanta_Falcons (@Atlanta_Falcons) June 11, 2014
Szczerba had a shot to stick on a fairly shallow tight end depth chart, but Mickey Shuler has been running well ahead of him and the Falcons appear to like Jake Pedersen. He'll try to catch on with another team, and we wish him well. The Falcons have Levine Toilolo and Bear Pascoe entrenched, while Shuler and Pedersen are in a dogfight for third tight end.
Yoklic was a camp leg at punter, really, with Matt Bosher entrenched as one of the better punters working in the game today. There was little chance he'd be able to unseat Bosh Pit. Again, we wish him well.
