Falcons 53 man roster projection after Week 2 of preseason

We’re feeling adventurous this morning, so it’s projection time.

NFL: Preseason-Atlanta Falcons at Cleveland Browns Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

A week ago, we tried our hand at a 53 man roster projection for the upcoming regular season, and promised to try it again after every game to see what changes would come. After watching last night’s game and mulling things over, we return to you with a roster that is slightly altered.

Again, our goal here isn’t to shake up the 53 man every time someone performs well in preseason so much as it is to reflect on preseason performance, what the team’s needs are, and the best way for the team to balance what they’re seeing before the season with the realities of roster construction. We’ll be interested to see your takes on our changes, which are bolded in the roster projection below.
