Falcons cut ties with reserve tackle, add defensive back Ryan Neal

It’s a summer sort of move, which is to say it shouldn’t have much in the ways of consequences.

The Atlanta Falcons were guaranteed to make some sort of move after Friday night’s game against the Jets, and they did. It is just as low-impact as you might imagine.

Calhoun’s stay with the Falcons was quite brief, as he joined up on July 30 and will now be looking for another team. He wasn’t a realistic option to push for the swing tackle role, and the Falcons still seem likely to carry just three tackles in 2018.

Neal is listed as a safety and joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent earlier this year, but Philadelphia released him earlier in the week. Neal will provide a little additional safety depth for the rest of the summer, but he’s unlikely to catch on for a team that has at least four solid safety options and only four or five roster spots for all of them.

Carry on with your day, friends.
