The Falcons have announced that they have brought back veteran placekicker Shayne Graham, who was with the team for part of last season as Matt Bryant struggled with injury. The team has also signed veteran safety Sergio Brown, and they have chosen to waive kicker Nick Rose.
Graham signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent following the 2000 NFL Draft, and the Falcons are the 10th NFL team he's spent time with over his 16-year career. In his time with the Falcons last season, Graham played in five games and converted 11 of 13 field goal attempts. He connected on all of his extra point attempts.
Sergio Brown was signed by the New England Patriots following the 2010 NFL Draft after going undrafted out of Notre Dame. He has plenty of NFL experience, having played in 26 games for the Patriots and then signing with the Colts, where he stayed for three seasons, appearing in 45 games and racking up 39 tackles. Brown spent last season in Jacksonville, where he played in 15 games and had 29 tackles.
Nick Rose was signed by the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Texas following the 2016 NFL Draft. He went two for four on field goals this preseason, which, yeah, isn't going to earn him a spot on the roster. We wish him well.
The roster once again stands at 90 players.
