New, comments

The Falcons have reportedly made a waiver claim, and are bringing in a familiar offensive tackle.

Not the big name waiver claim many expected expected, but the Falcons were certain to add to the three offensive tackles that made the final roster. If Bryce Harris sounds familiar, you may remember him from not making the roster back in 2012.

Ahhh... the memories.

ESPN's New Orleans Saints beat writer Mike Triplett was the first to report the waiver claim.

Saints fans on twitter were happy to see Harris cut yesterday, but the Falcons were likely looking for a healthy tackle with some game experience. Harris is a 6-foot-6, 300-pound tackle with 4 career starts and 34 career games played. Hard to do much better than that in early September.

Harris will take up the 53rd spot on the roster, and provide much needed depth to a thin offensive line.
