Atlanta Falcons Getting Practice Squad Set Up

The Atlanta Falcons are starting to get their whole roster into place.

Several of them are quality athletes that made a serious contention to make the 53 man active roster.

  • Ricardo Allen, 2014 5th round draft pick (THANK GOD we we’re able to retain this kid)
  • Travian Robertson, defensive tackle
  • Harland Gunn, offensive guard
  • Jacques Smith, Outside Lineback (Again, another player that we were lucky to retain)
  • Sean Baker, Safety
  • Terren Jones, Offensive Tackle
  • Bernard Reedy, Wide Receiver
  • Jerome Smith, Running Back

Two guys that I am stoked about keeping is Ricardo Allen and Jacques Smith. In fact, I am still in a little bit of a shock that the Atlanta Falcons released Allen, being that he is the 5th round draft pick. Jacques, who had a couple of fights during the preseason and training camp, is a ruthless pass rusher that will give the tackles competition. Don’t be surprised if they pull these two up to the 53 man if some players don’t perform the way they are expected to (which will happen, it always does).
