Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers will once again have his brother as a teammate this season. At least at practice.

The Falcons have named their eight-member practice squad, and one of the members is James Rodgers, the big brother of Jacquizz Rodgers. James Rodgers was also on the Falcons’ practice squad last year, and the brothers were teammates at Oregon State as well.

Also on the practice squad is quarterback Seth Doege. Like several other teams, the Falcons decided to keep only two quarterbacks (Matt Ryan and Dominique Davis) on the 53-man roster, and to keep a third on the practice squad.

Atlanta also signed fullback Patrick DiMarco, receiver Darius Johnson, cornerback Jordan Mabin, guard Phillipkeith Manley, defensive tackle Adam Replogle and tight end Mickey Shuler to the practice squad.

    How did their parents decide that one son would be James and the other son would be Jacquizz?

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Jaquizz is a really really weird name

    No Brian banks? He may not have time for football with his book deal, upcoming movie, motivational speaking and of course running the 11 Home Depots that Arthur gave him

    Honestly…

    I clicked this story because after seeing the headline, I just wanted to know what the brother’s name was.

    James.

    Who here saw that coming?

    James Rodgers?

    Can we just go with “Jimbo”, for short?
