Falcons drop to 63 players


Earlier on Friday, a few of the moves the Falcons made to get down to 53 players were announced via sources other than the team.

The team has confirmed those cuts — linebacker Pat Angerer, running back Josh Vaughn, tackle Pat McQuistan, linebacker Yawin Smallwood and fullback Maurice Hagens — and announced seven more. The moves leave the Falcons with 63 players and 10 more moves to make before Saturday’s deadline.

Some of the names among the seven other players cut may be familiar to avid Falcons or Hard Knocks fans, but all of them were long shots to wind up on the final roster. They are defensive end Nosa Eguae, cornerback Jordan Mabin, wide receiver Freddie Martino (pictured), safety Kimario McFadden, tight end Jacob Pedersen, offensive lineman Adam Replogle and defensive tackle Donte Rumph.

Mabin and Replogle were members of the Falcons practice squad last season while the other players were signed as undrafted free agents after being passed over in May.

    Correct. The panthers will be 3 – 13. At best.

    Rumor has it that Mike Smith called the league and asked if he was allowed to cut more.

    Why do panthers fans think they run the NFC South? They have No WR’s, No Oline, Cam is already hurt and your defense won’t put up the same numbers as last year. 6-10 at best for the Kitty Kats
