Update: the Atlanta Falcons announced Grace joined the team’s practice squad, so he’s not taking Duke’s spot yet.
The Atlanta Falcons have been switching up their linebacker group which has failed to look the same since Deion Jones left for injured reserve. We noted earlier this week that Duke Riley seems to have taken a back seat to Foye Oluokon. The defense looks improved but there was definitely still work to do.
Also if you have been paying attention, the Seattle Seahawks put former Falcons preseason standout on injured reserve earlier this season. Now healthy, they waived him instead of bringing him back to the team.

It was really a match made in heaven.
Grace is back! He made it a few games with the Falcons in 2017, before spending some time in the regular season with the Indianapolis Colts, some preseason time with the Cleveland Browns, and one game with the Seattle Seahawks before injury.
No word if he’s back on the practice squad or the 53 There’s a good chance he ends up on the active roster, but Atlanta would need to cut someone to make room for the linebacker. If we see a roster move coming up, we will know where Grace ended up.
