Falcons roster cuts: Atlanta cuts 5 players

No, Matt Ryan has not been cut yet.

As is part and parcel with this time of year, the Atlanta Falcons have announced their first wave of roster cuts. The team cut five players today, bringing the roster down to 84.

The first names to hit the road are:

  • WR David Glidden
  • DE Efe Obada
  • FB Will Ratelle
  • CB Jordan Sefon
  • OG Jordan Walsh
The most notable name on this list is David Glidden, who garnered some attention during camp. He failed to separate himself from the other receivers on the team, though.

Also, given that Matt Ryan is going to be starting the fourth preseason game, we can safely presume that he won't be cut until at least after next Thursday. So, there's that at least.

We'll keep you updated as soon as we hear of any more roster cuts.
