Falcons shuffle roster: WR Bernard "Speedy" Reedy waived, OL Eric Lefeld returns

New, comments

A fan favorite is the most recent victim in the battle of the undrafted free agents.

If you thought the team was done making roster moves before next cut downs, you may be surprised. The Falcons announced they shuffled a roster spot, hopefully to improve their offensive line depth.

Reedy has been a fan favorite for awhile, but has never made the jump to the active roster. The undersized wide receiver was likely pushed out of roster contention thanks to the additions of Justin Hardy and Leonard Hankerson. Happy trails, Speedy.

Lefeld is an undrafted offensive lineman that was physically limited, but may become practice squad player thanks to mounting injuries along the offensive line. Or perhaps the team was running out of healthy bodies for their fourth preseason game.

Prepare for lots of roster shuffling this next week.
