The Atlanta Falcons will most likely lose their preseason games against the Miami Dolphins on August 14th as well as their game versus the Buffalo Bills on August 21st.
The NFL has announced that they are cutting preseason games from four to two due to the current COVID-19 issues that still remain. For now, the Atlanta Falcons will keep their final two games the Bengals and the Jaguars, giving them one preseason game at home and one on the road.
According to ESPN:
"“The NFL and the NFLPA continue to discuss protocols for reopening of team facilities, testing programs and other matters related to playing amid a pandemic (and) there is no hard deadline for finalizing of protocols”"
CBS’s Jason La Canfora, suggests that preseason rosters could be cut from 90 to 70 off the top.
If that is true, the conventional thinking is that the team simply cuts all of the undrafted college free agents that they signed after the draft was over. However, there are three veteran Atlanta Falcons players that could be among those cuts.
When looking at the revamped Atlanta Falcons roster as a whole, there are three veterans that will get cut at some point by the start of the regular season. These are three veterans that have served as a backups or starters in 2019.
