Falcons dump Jamaal Fudge

We say it every year:  Guys who survive the cut to 53 players should keep the corks in the champagne bottles.

We say it because, every year, the collection of players who hit the market simultaneously sparks a game of musical chairs that routinely results in players who thought they had won a seat at the table getting thrown into a cabinet.

This year, it’s happened to plenty of guys since 6:00 p.m. ET on Saturday. 

The latest victim?  Falcons safety Jamaal Fudge.

Fudge, a Jacksonville native, signed with the Jaguars in 2006 as an undrafted free agent.  He was cut in September 2008, and the Falcons claimed him on waivers.

He appeared in 11 games last year for the Falcons, with one start. 

Fudge will now head to waivers, where he’ll undoubtedly be claimed by the Lions.

And we say that only half-jokingly.  Former Jags V.P. of player personnel Shack Harris works in the Detroit front office now, and there’s a chance Harris will lobby for the Lions to give him a shot.

Of course, the adolescent-minded members of the audience have their fingers crossed that Jamaal will sign with Green Bay.

And that sentence was extremely difficult for me to type with my fingers crossed.

    Just downright disgustingly rude and immoral!!
    Evil crimes against nature should not be mentioned here.
    Time to notify NBC.

    Jamaal Fudge was let go to make room for Sunday night’s signing of former Jaguar CB Brian Williams.

    What does that say that you thought of it first?

    Tidbits like this make this site what it is – the best around.
    Thanks for the laugh Florio, albeit, an elementary school-level laugh, but hey, I don’t discriminate.

    Ah, Florio, you’ve been reading the Falcons message boards! How do I know? Because last night someone very cleverly predicted that we would “send fudge packing”. Someone else then answered, “Yes, but who will we cut to make room for Brian Williams.”

    I don’t get it.

    LOL Florio. We all know that Jamaal Fudge belongs with the Fudgepackers. It’s only natural.

    The Jags are thin at safety – I imagine they might be a candidate for his services.

    So Florio (Mr.I’m a liberal weinie who voted for Obama) you think it’s ok to use a offensive and obscene slang term for a male homosexual.It’s funny how you all turn out to be such hypocrites well I’m sure NBC will be proud of this.Fudge Packers wow how originally hilarious maybe this joke will win me a copy of your crappy (pun intended) book. Here it goes poo poo ca ca pee pee I repeated everything twice so you would get it.
    Jared Allen 69 once again brilliant you reflect well on Viking fans But then you think the Vikings destroyed the Packers last year lost one game outright and won the other on a missed game winning field goal

    And who among us has not at least somewhat of an an adolescent mind.
    Go pack!!

  14. fellorio says: Sep 7, 2009 5:04 PM

    Besides which, where does he get off going through life with that fake last name. It’s clearly a cheap gimmick to garner attention.

    For all the times Green Bay dumped Dookie..

    If Shack Harris had any say in drafting Matt Stafford; He will be a bust. Poor Detroit. What did they do to deserve this. Matt Millan first and now Shack Harris?! WTF
