The Falcons made a change to their running back group on Thursday.

The team announced the signing of former Giant Wayne Gallman as a free agent. Gallman signed with the 49ers in the offseason, but failed to make the club.

Qadree Ollison was cut to make room for Gallman in Atlanta.

Gallman set career highs with 147 carries for 682 yards and six touchdowns while filling in for the injured Saquon Barkley last season. The 2017 fourth-round pick played a more limited role in his first three seasons, but did score five touchdowns over that span.

Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson are the other players on the running back depth chart.

  1. Good signing, I always thought he was a good piece for a team and probably not command to much money. He’s been on my fantasy teams as a band aid more than once.

  2. He’ll be the starter by week 8. Davis will not last the entire season. Last year he had 1 good game after week 7.
