Coy Wire, Chauncey Davis among early Falcons cuts

You can tell the Falcons program under G.M. Thomas Dimitroff is working because they are cutting better players in year four of the Dimitroff/Mike Smith era.

Solid veteran defenders Chauncey Davis, Trey Lewis and Coy Wire were among 17 Falcons cut on Friday.  All three have played a lot of snaps for the Falcons defense, which is getting younger.  10 more players will have to go on Saturday.

Here’s the rest of the list: tight end Marquez Branson, fullback Lucas Cox, center Paul Fenaroli, safety Matt Hansen, wide receiver Brandyn Harvey, running back Gartrell Johnson, defensive end Tom McCarthy, cornerback Kamaal McIlwain, center Ryan McMahon, safety Rafael Priest, defensive end Kiante Tripp, safety Suaesi Tuimaunei and linebacker Bear Woods.

The Falcons also reached an injury settlement with wide receiver Andy Strickland.

    Man I knew Saints fans were dumb but dude your really not helping the image. When Atlanta gets destroyed and hundreds/thousands of people die and we fail to win a ring then please talk all you want. At least last season we lost to the sb champs. Ya’ll lost to the Seahawks. Sorry I would rather cheer on a team that hasn’t won a ring then cheer on a team with fans like you. Your parents must be real proud…

    I would also love to help you all with your cheer since so many of you get it wrong.

    Who dat, who dat, who dat say gon beat dem saints. Who dat, who dat, falcons done already beat dem saints.

    Please remember the chant correctly next time. Thank you.

    Way to support your team, but I got a question – If the Falcons are so pathetic, and the Falcons split with the Saints – and the Saints lost to Seattle (Falcons won)- does that not make the Saints even more pathetic?

    I’m not even a falcons fan, but reading the post from rajunretard just made me 10% dummer. What a waste.
