Predicting the Falcons’ 53-man roster before preseason
Tight Ends: Jacob Tamme, Tony Moeaki, Levine Toilolo

The Atlanta Falcons only kept two tight ends on the 53-man roster in 2014, but that is highly unlikely to happen again in 2015. The Falcons elected to bring in two new faces to compete with Levine Toilolo who was the number one guy in 2014. And so far all three men have impressed.
It is highly unlikely that the Falcons don’t keep all three of these players. Kyle Shannahan has kept three tight ends on his team in almost every year he has coached and has even kept four on a team. Toilolo has really impressed everyone by not dropping anything thrown his way this year in training camp while Tamme hauls in everything as well.
I wouldn’t call this a battle, but all three of these men should get a lot of playing time in this year’s preseason.
