Atlanta Falcons sign 16 undrafted free agents
The Atlanta Falcons signed 16 undrafted free agents last week that could possibly make the team and may even become stars for the Falcons.
Many of the players signed by the Atlanta Falcons are offensive lineman, wide receivers and defensive backs. Out of the 16 players signed, four are offensive lineman, four are wide receivers and three are defensive/corner backs.
According to 24/7 sports, the offensive lineman that were signed consists of: Lanard Bonner, OT from Arkansas State, Chandler Miller, C from Tulsa, Jaelin Robinson, OL from Temple and Devin Johnson, OL from Ferris State. Keep in mind Falcons fans, Jeff Saturday was an undrafted free agent signing for the Baltimore Ravens back in 1998 and went on to become a star for the Indianapolis Colts.
The wide receivers signed include: Shawn Bane from Northwest Missouri, Olamide Zaccheaus from Virginia, Kahill Lewis from Cincinnati and C.J. Worton from Florida International. Again, keep in mind Falcons fans that Wes Welker was an undrafted free agent signing who went on to have a great career.
The defensive/corner backs signed include: Jayson Stanley from Georgia, Parker Baldwin from San Diego State and Rashard Causey from Central Florida.
Other players that were signed are linebackers Tre’ Crawford, Del’Shawn Phillips and Yurik Bethune. One long snapper, Kyle Vasey, was signed. A defensive end, Durrant Miles, was also signed.
The undrafted free agent signings look like a solid selection of players. Note all of them will make the team, but the ones who do will add depth to the roster, something that the Atlanta Falcons have been working on the entire off season. Nobody wants a repeat of the 2018 injury plagued season.
Overall, it looks like a solid list of players at positions that the Atlanta Falcons need more depth at. Who knows, maybe some of the undrafted free agent signings will become stars.
