If this depth chart seems familiar to the one revealed last week, it’s because it is. It was possible for some minor changes to be made, especially at the punter position, but it appears the Falcons are staying put for now. It’s only Tuesday though, so there’s plenty of time for the roster to shake up a bit.
On Tuesday, the team signed veteran punter Dustin Colquitt, which will be something to monitor over the new few weeks if Cameron Nizialek continues to struggle. But for now, it appears head coach Arthur Smith will indeed give young players a opportunity to overcome their growing pains and roll on with what they’ve got. Let’s hope it leads to better results.
We’ll see if any further moves are made later in the week, but for now the depth chart remains the same.
