We’re back with a special edition of The Falcoholic podcast to talk about and analyze the first 53-man roster for the Falcons 2019 NFL season. Joining me on this podcast are two of our writers: Evan Birchfield and Adnan Ikic. We take a look at the roster from head to toe and discuss:

  • The logjam at running back and why in the world the team would bother keeping fullback Ricky Ortiz
  • The additions of players like Jaeden Graham and Jermaine Grace and why it bodes well for the team
  • The unfortunate cut of fringe players like Chris Cooper, Austin Larkin and others
  • The potential for the roster to change before the regular season begins and even into the first few weeks of the season
  • Why this young defensive corps with guys like Deion Jones, Keanu Neal and Grady Jarrett is exciting to think about
  • Much, much more

As always, you can find the podcast wherever fine podcasts are available or you can listen below:
