The Falcons have brought back a fairly familiar face to mix up their depth at running back this summer.

That’s right, RB Terrence Magee has returned after being let go by the team last month. They must’ve felt that he would be better to have around in camp this summer than Richard, who was an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State and had some speculating he had halfback potential.

Magee was briefly a member of the active roster during the team’s winter playoff run after RB Devonta Freeman hurt his knee, but didn’t really contribute anything for that stint. He was around with the team all through the spring, but was released in May ahead of OTAs. Now, he’ll try to convince the Birds to carry four running backs.

We’re happy to see him return, and wish him the best as he tries to make a lasting impact on the roster, albeit at a crowded position. We also wish Richard all the best as he tries to catch on with another team.
