Falcons announce full set of roster cuts

The Falcons have a few small surprises as they whittle down to a 53 man roster, but will likely be active chasing other teams’ cuts in the days ahead.

The Falcons have made their required roster cuts, bringing the roster into compliance ahead of the 4 p.m. Tuesday deadline for having (at most) a 53 man roster. As you’d expect in a year where the team vowed that it would be harder to make the squad, there are a few surprise cuts in the bunch.

The biggest surprises are probably Timothy Horne, a player who seemingly had done well enough this summer to hold down a spot on the defensive line, and tight end Parker Hesse, a vital blocker last year who has been supplanted by 2022 draft pick John FitzPatrick. Godwin Igwebuike, who was excellent this summer for Atlanta and has some value as a returner, would make the list as well. Obviously 2021 draft picks Jalen Mayfield and Darren Hall are slightly jarring names because each only spent two years with the team before being cut loose.

The full list of cuts is below.
