For the Falcons, the only name of any surprise is second year corner Jalen Collins. For those that don’t remember, Collins was suspended for the first four games of the season. In the time he’s been out, rookie corner Brian Pool has done a commendable job. C.J. Goodwin has done a good job on special teams, making Collins the odd-man out. It’s not a good look for the second year player that many were hoping would be a long-term replacement for Robert Alford.
The names on the list for the Seahawks are a bit more interesting.

The first name of note is obviously Kam Chancellor, the hard-hitting strong safety and “enforcer” for the Seahawks defense. This is a big loss for the Seahawks. Additionally, pass rusher Frank Clark is also out. Clark has been one of the Seahawks better pass rushers, so his loss will certainly be felt as well.
Your thoughts on the inactive players for both teams?
