The team is still figuring out their roster and do exactly what you do to your fantasy football lineup: make small, inconsequential moves to players that will never play for your team. Welcome, Cornelius Edison.
Falcons signing offensive lineman Cornelius Edison today— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) May 17, 2017
Edison suffered an injury prior to the draft, and wasn’t healthy until deep into the 2015 season. The Chicago Bears brought him onto their practice squad, and rotated him between there and the active roster a bunch in 2016. He managed to fill in at center for six games.
How good were those six games? Well, he’s available right now if that’s any indication. The 6-foot-3, 309-pound player is likely being brought in to take snaps at center and guard. He’s definitely a long shot to make the roster, but can definitely make it with a strong training camp.
