Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Wednesday, Nov. 10

LIIINKS

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Links, of the Falcons variety, on your internet doorstep bright and early on a Wednesday morning. Like a milkman of Atlanta Falcons content.

JTM, Cameron Nizialek cut

Jacob Tuioti-Mariner has been a productive rotational player along the defensive line, which is why it was unexpected news that he had been released on Wednesday afternoon. His defensive snaps have been dwindling over the course of the season, so with the transaction, it appears like a scheme casualty.

JTM could land on Atlanta’s practice squad, but should that not happen he’s likely to land elsewhere given his talent.

The Falcons also released punter Cameron Nizialek, which is less of a surprise given how punter Dustin Colquitt has settled in.

Along with those two moves, the Falcons have elevated cornerback Chris Williamson to the active roster, which could signal some time away for Kendall Sheffield after his hamstring injury on Sunday.

What we learned

It’s well-established that wide receiver/kick returner/running back/Bering Sea crab boat fisherman Cordarrelle Patterson may not be entirely human, but what else did we learn from Atlanta’s win over New Orleans?

Tips ‘n scratches

Who deserved a tip o’ the hat and who received a scratch o’ the head after the Falcons snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and promptly snatched it back against the Saints?

Week 10 depth chart released

Hard to believe it’s Week 10 already, but here we are. The Falcons head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys and their former head coach Dan Quinn on Sunday, and the team has released its first official depth chart for the contest.

MOOOOOOCKS

Oh god, it’s already happening. The Falcons currently sit as the 7th seed for the playoffs, which has them at 19th in the 2022 NFL Draft order. How could that scenario potentially play out? The Week 10 edition of the Falcons’ mock draft has got you covered.
