An early look at the Falcons 90 man roster ahead of 2019 training camp

New, comments

The Falcons will be trying to winnow down by 37 guys over the next two months. Who stays and who goes?

We are surprisingly close to training camp, which means it’s time to start talking about the biggest thing that happens between now and the start of the season: The roster battles.

To do so, it helps to have a sense of where the roster stands today. The Falcons have 90 men currently, one of whom is the injured Steven Means, and their sniffing around the likes of Allen Bailey earlier in the offseason suggest they’re not quite done on the defensive line regardless. At the moment, though, this is where things stand.

You’ll note the team has plenty of competition for the last spots in the secondary, at defensive tackle, and at most positions on offense. Iron sharpens iron and all that, so hopefully this team will head into 2019 with better and more settled depth than they had in 2018, when that shaky depth proved disastrous.

We’ll update this if and when the roster changes between now and the opening of training camp in about three weeks, so stay tuned.
