4 Atlanta Falcons moves to open up $18 million in cap space
3. Feleipe Franks
Franks isn’t saving Atlanta much against the cap this cut is all about opening a roster spot. Franks isn’t a backup quarterback and cannot play tight-end well enough to demand a roster spot. Why Franks has been able to keep his roster spot over the past two years remains a mystery. For a coaching staff that has preached you must earn your spot it is an odd decision. The team was willing to part ways with Bryan Edwards at a thin position after weeks of failed production. It has been two seasons of failed production from Franks and it is time to move on.
4. Jalen Mayfield
The difference in Atlanta’s offensive line with Jalen and without Jalen the past two seasons speaks for itself. Mayfield was a bad draft pick and clearly a bust. With how many picks the current Atlanta front office has hit on there is zero problem with admitting you were wrong and moving on from an objectively bad player.
