With Gabe Carimi in on the offensive line for the Falcons, Falcons offensive lineman Garrett Reynolds is out.

Reynolds’ agent, Chad Speck, announced on Twitter that Reynolds have been informed he’ll be released.  A fifth-round pick of the Falcons in 2009, Reynolds (the nephew of former NFL linebacker Hacksaw Reynolds) signed a two-year, $2.587 million contract in 2013.

The move creates more than $1.3 million in cap space for the Falcons.  Reynolds appeared in 15 games with a career-high 10 starts in 2013.
