This roster move is a tough one to crack, and some fans might even be steamed to see Dwight Freeney is still a free agent. Apparently the team was in a pinch after Trevor Robinson abruptly retired, so they went out and signed a player from NEC powerhouse Duquesne.

According to the team’s press release, Graham earned second team All-Northeast Conference honors three years in a row. According to Google, the NEC includes teams like The Mount and Bryant Bulldogs. There’s not a lot of information out there on Graham, but he manned the right tackle spot for an offense that did pretty well.
The Falcons have 15 offensive linemen on the roster, so Graham may have to butter up the coaching staff to even hold onto a practice squad spot. The chance of a Dwight Freeney return seem to be in hot water.
