The Atlanta Falcons got their roster down to the mandatory 53 but in doing so, bucked tradition.
“I’ll say this, we let a lot of good football players, a lot of good men, go over the weekend,” Head Coach Mike Smith said Monday. “Tough decisions.”
One decision that bucks their normal trend was in keeping six running backs on this years squad.
“They have competed, and we said it was going to be open competition in our evaluation. They won the competition and that is why they are here on our squad. They will have an opportunity to help us win football games this year.”
The Falcons take on the New Orleans Saints Sunday at 1. Tickets are still available!
