Atlanta Falcons final roster prediction: Tight ends (4)

  • Kyle Pitts
  • Jonnu Smith
  • Parker Hesse
  • MyCole Pruitt

Notable cuts: John FitzPatrick

This is another position that you should pay close attention to. Obviously, the Atlanta Falcons will keep Kyle Pitts and Jonnu Smith but then there is a fight between Parker Hesse, MyCole Pruitt, and John FitzPatrick.

What swayed the decision was Parker Hesse's versatility to be a TE/FB-hybrid and Pruitt's chemistry with Desmond Ridder.

Keeping five tight ends around could be an option if Pitts is going to be used as a receiver more often.
