Three bold roster cuts the Atlanta Falcons should make

The Atlanta Falcons have finished up their preseason slate and now they are hard at work trying to trim their roster down to just 53 players.

Terry Fontenot has until 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday to reach that strict mark that the NFL has set. This means that there will be 37 players who are released prior to August 29th. If the Falcons decide to shop for other players who are released then they will have to cut even more players than that. Unless, of course, they place a player or two on the injured reserve.

To get to the roster limit the Falcons have to make so many tough decisions. Good players are going to be looking for new jobs because there isn't room for everyone—the NFL is a cruel world.
