Falcons claim zero players; Chris Odom and Reggie Davis heading to new teams

New, comments

The braintrust must feel pretty good with their current guys, because they didn’t make a Taylor Gabriel type move.

The Atlanta Falcons only have three defensive tackles, which is apparently more than enough. We saw a ton of waiver claims and movement around the league, but none of it happened with Atlanta.

There’s not much to say here. The Falcons still have to setup their practice squad, and that news should start coming in today. The team was either blocked by other teams with higher priority, or saw no one they thought would improve the team.

Two former Falcons got picked up and added to some active rosters. In fact, it was two players we thought might make the roster.

Odom looked really impressive and was given a ton of snaps this preseason. I had him penciled into the final 53.

Reggie Davis was raw, but had way more upside than WR6 Nick Williams. It felt like either Davis or Hall could have beat out Williams. Neither did.
