After the 2005 college football season, Georgia quarterback D.J. Shockley was viewed as a guy who could become a legitimate NFL starter.
But he slid all the way to round seven in the 2006 draft, making him the first former Bulldog in more than a decade who was picked by the Falcons.
He has yet to make it onto the field in a regular-season game at the Georgia Dome, and if he ever does it will be for the team playing against the Falcons.
The team cut him again today, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Last year, Shockley lost his roster spot but landed on the practice squad.
The move leaves the Falcons at 78 players, with two spots available for their final two unsigned draft picks.
The team now has three quarterbacks: Matt Ryan, Chris Redman, and John Parker Wilson. If they plan to add a fourth arm for camp, another guy will need to go.
