2017 NFL roster cuts: The Falcons make it to a 53 man roster

Tip your cap to the many former Falcons looking for jobs.

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons’ cuts trickled out at first, and then they began coming in greater and greater waves, as so often happens. Now the dust has settled (I’m mixing metaphors) and we know who the team has elected to move on from.

There are very few surprises on this list, overall, but Ra’Shede Hageman making to the commissioner exemption list is one of them. We don’t know quite what’s going on here, but he’s not on the roster at the moment. Chris Odom and J’Terius Jones were both also waived, and neither Marvin Hall or Reggie Davis made it at receiver. Nick Williams is the sixth guy, at least for now.

Here’s the full list of cuts. Look for an updated 53 man roster and some analysis on the overall strength of the team coming up in the hours and days ahead!
