As mentioned, there weren’t a ton of changes to the Falcons’ depth chart this week. With receiver Calvin Ridley stepping away from football to focus on his mental health, Tajae Sharpe slots into his role going forward. Sharpe finished the most recent game against the Carolina Panthers as the team’s top wide receiver, recording five receptions for 58 yards.

Additionally, the team made some moves on Tuesday, parting ways with rookie undrafted linebacker Dorian Etheridge. In corresponding moves, they added linebacker James Vaughters and special teamer Daren Bates to the roster, and signed wide receiver Marvin Hall to the practice squad.

Hall could be a candidate to move up to the active roster in the near future, as the wide receiver depth is largely young and inexperienced. Hall previously played for the Falcons from 2017-2018, where he totaled 12 catches for 209 yards and two touchdowns.
