The Falcons have opened another roster spot, announcing the release of wide receiver Dominique Croom on Tuesday.
The departure of Croom leaves the Falcons with 87 players, according to their online roster. This would give Atlanta three vacant roster slots.
A Central Arkansas product, Croom signed with the Falcons’ practice squad last November. He entered the NFL with Cleveland as an undrafted rookie in 2013. Croom will be subject to waivers.
The Falcons have 11 wide receivers on their roster, with Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas the top three at the position.
