Position Listing
 
Ryan Schraeder
News
The Falcons revealed second-year offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder will be starting at right tackle in Week 10 at Tampa Bay.

Injuries have decimated the Falcons’ offensive line in 2014, which has resulted in an inconsistent offense. 

Kevin White
No Updates
Terrell Floyd
News
Terrell Floyd was absent from the start of Falcons' practice on Saturday, but he eventually rejoioned the team. 

Floyd, an undrafted rookie safety, suffered from dehydration on Friday and was taken from practice in an ambulance. 

"He actually joined us toward the end of practice," coach Dan Quinn said, per the Journal Constitution. "He had further testing done. We’re going to hold him out for the remainder of the camp. Then starting Monday and Tuesday, hopefully indoctrinate him into the offseason program. … Glad to see that things are going well for him."

Devin Hester
News
Looking to make up for some lost big-play potential, the Falcons gave return man Devin Hester more of a look on offense with star wide receiver Julio Jones sidelined by a hip injury Week 15 against Pittsburgh, and he delivered five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown, scoring on a 17-yard strike from quarterback Matt Ryan in the second quarter. He nearly had a second touchdown, too, just missing on a 4-yard toss in the third quarter. Of course, that play would have been negated by an offensive pass interference penalty anyway.

That was Hester's only miss on the day, but then, that's kind of the problem. Six target does not a reliable Fantasy option make, especially when the Falcons had two other players, Harry Douglas and Roddy White, with double-digit targets.

Even if Jones doesn't return Week 16 at New Orleans, you can't count on Hester being as efficient with the targets he gets, and considering Jones was a game-time decision for Week 15, there's a good chance Hester goes back to getting just two or three. Outside of deeper leagues, he's not deserving of a waiver claim.

Derrick Malone
No Updates
Justin Blalock
News
Free agent guard Justin Blalock, who spent his first eight seasons with the Falcons, is visiting the Lions on Thursday, reports MLive.com. Blalock, 31, has missed only three games since entering the starting lineup in 2007.

He could supplant Rob Sims at left guard.

Antone Smith
News
Falcons running back Antone Smith continues to recover from the broken leg that ended his season on November 16 last year. 

"The recovery is going pretty good," Smith said, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "I’m up and running. I’m almost full force, but not quite where I need to be. In time, that will take care of itself."

Osi Umenyiora
News
Defensive end Osi Umenyiora was in New Jersey Wednesday to visit with the Jets, according to Fox Sports 1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo.

Umenyiora, although he played in all 16 games last season for the Falcons, did not start a game for the first time in his career. He came over to the team in 2013 after nine years with the Giants.

The 33-year-old has tallied 435 total tackles, 85.0 sacks, 17 passes defensed and 35 forced fumbles in 12 seasons in the NFL.

Ricky Heimuli
News
The Jaguars have pared down their roster to 53 on Saturday by cutting 20 players.

The players on that list are: C Michael Brewster, G Drew Nowak, DE Gerald Rivers, QB Ricky Stanzi, WR Chad Bumphis, FB Eric Kettani, TE Brandon Barden, OT Cody Booth, DL Deandre Coleman, DT Ricky Heimuli, S Craig Loston, QB Stephen Morris, K/P Kasey Redfern, G Tyler Shatley, TE D.J. Tialavea, LB Marcus Whitfield, WR Kerry Taylor, S Sherrod Martin, LB Nate Stupar and CB Jamell Fleming.
O'Brien Schofield
News
Seahawks offensive stars Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin are active Week 10 against the Giants.

Both players came into the game listed as probable. Lynch is dealing with a calf injury. Baldwin has a groin issue. The team will also have Michael Bennett, Jordan Hill, Russell Okung, O'Brien Schofield and Max Unger. All five players were also listed as probable coming into the contest.

Marcus Burley and Byron Maxwell should play as well. They were both listed as questionable. Burley is dealing with a hamstring injury, Maxwell has a calf issue. 

Guard Stephen Schilling is the only doubtful player who is active for the game.

Charles Godfrey
News
The Falcons signed safety Charles Godfrey to a contract extension Thursday, the team announced.

Godfrey played for the Falcons and Panthers in 2014. In 13 games between the two teams, Godfrey totaled 19 tackles.

William Moore
News
Falcons strong safety William Moore is hoping to be cleared for at least some activity this offseason after undergoing major shoulder surgery after last year.

"I haven't the slightest idea," Moore told ESPN when asked when he will be given clearance. "We're still rehabbing. We're sore right now from rehab, but my body feels excellent. My weight is great. I'm at 220. I was at 230, 232. With this defense, we're running and hitting. I'm still going to be down in the box. I'm excited about that."

Moore separated his shoulder in Week 4 and was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return. He then re-injured it in December, which limited his action to just seven games in 2014.

Mike Person
News
The Falcons announced Tuesday that they have agreed to a deal with offensive lineman Mike Person. A four-year veteran, Person saw his first extended action last season with the Rams, playing in all 16 games.
Mike Johnson
News
The Falcons re-signed offensive tackle Mike Johnson to a one-year deal, reports ESPN.com. He did not play last season after fracturing his fibula in training camp.
Valerian Ume-Ezeoke
No Updates
T.J. Yates
News
Falcons coach Dan Quinn is not ruling out bringing back former Atlanta quarterback Matt Schaub to compete for the backup role behind starter Matt Ryan, per ESPN.

"Schaub is certainly somebody that we could [add]," Quinn said. "As we get through it, we'll let you know if we go down that road."

The 34-year-old Schaub was released by the Raiders in mid-March. T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree are the other quarterbacks on the Falcons' roster.

Dezmen Southward
News
New Falcons coach Dan Quinn met with the media at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Thursday and discussed his plans for the team's defensive players. 

The biggest news was that the team plans to move Prince Shembo back to outside linebacker. Shembo was drafted as an outside linebacker, but injuries on the defense required him to move inside. 

Shembo had 59 tackles for the Falcons in his rookie season, but he'll likely play more of a role in the pass rush from the outside. He had nine sacks as a senior at Notre Dame while playing OLB. 

Quinn also plans to use Tyson Jackson and Paul Soliai on the inside. They split time between defensive tackle and end last season, but Quinn was impressed with their size at the tackle spots. Soliai had 29 tackles and a sack last season. Jackson had 22 tackles. 

Quinn said Dezmen Southward, who played exclusively at safety last season, will get a look at the cornerback position as well. 

Southward had 23 tackles, one sack and two pass defenses last year. 

Tyler Starr
News
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Matt Huffer
No Updates
Collin Mooney
News
The Falcons added former Titans fullback Collin Mooney to their roster Monday, singing the former Army standout per Yahoo! Sports. 

Mooney last played in the league in 2013, when he appeared in 12 games, catching six passes for 32 yards. 

Nate Stupar
News
The Falcons signed linebacker Nate Stupar, a special teams standout, to a one-year extension for the minimum, $585,000, reports ESPN.com. Stupar ranked second on the team with nine special teams tackles, seven solo, while appearing in 15 games last season.
Beau Gardner
No Updates
Jerome Smith
News
The Falcons promoted running back Jerome Smith to the active roster and waived linebacker James Anderson, reports the National Football Post. Smith is a 6-foot, 226-pounder out of Syracuse who could be active Sunday if running back Steven Jackson (quad) can't play against the Panthers.
Ricardo Allen
News
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Roddy White
News
Although Falcons wide receiver Roddy White turned 33 years old during the 2014 season, he told 680 The Fan on Wednesday he still feels his playing career is not close to being over, per the team's official website.

"Actually, I feel pretty good. Throughout the end of the season, I felt like my legs were under me," White said. "I wish I hadn't missed two games. That was my goal this year, to get through the year completely healthy, but that didn't happen for me. I feel I could play two or three more years, if I could just stay healthy through the whole course of a season and not miss any games."

White capped his 10th season in the NFL with 80 catches for 921 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games.

"I feel like I'm playing at a really good level," White said. "Any time you can go out there and catch 80 passes in the NFL, you're doing pretty good. I feel like I can play another two or three years and be successful."

Malliciah Goodman
News
Falcons LB Akeem Dent, DE Malliciah Goodman, S Zeke Motta and LB Sean Weatherspoon are active Week 13 against the Bills.

All four players were questionable coming into the game. They were all able to get through limited practice Friday.

Drew Davis
News
The Falcons did not tender restricted free agent receiver Drew Davis, making him an unrestricted free agent, reports ESPN.com. Davis did not make a catch last season as he recovered from foot surgery.
Adrian Clayborn
News
The Falcons signed a couple of players with hopes of bolstering a defense that ranked dead last in the NFL a season ago. 

Atlanta announced that it has signed contracts with defensive end Adrian Clayborn and cornerback Phillip Adams.

Clayborn's 2014 season ended early due to a biceps injury. Adams, a journeyman entering his sixth NFL season, appeared in 12 games for the Jets in 2014 and totaled 24 tackles and one interception. 

Clayborn played the entire 2013 season and recorded 64 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks. 

Cliff Matthews
News
The Falcons re-signed fullback Patrick DiMarco and defensive end Cliff Matthews, the team announced on Tuesday. 

DiMarco was an exclusive-rights free agent, and Matthews was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March. 

DiMarco had 17 catches for 111 yards and a touchdown in two seasons with the Falcons. Matthews has appeared in 32 games, mainly on special teams, in four years with the team. 

The Falcons also brought in WR Nick Williams, a former Redskin. 

Jonathan Babineaux
News
The Falcons are all but perfectly healthy for their Sunday game against visiting Cleveland. Cornerback Robert Alford (wrist) and offensive tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring) are out, but the other eight players on their injury report are probable.

That group includes guard Jon Asamoah (shoulder), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), wide receivers Drew Davis (foot), Harry Douglas (foot), Julio Jones (illness) and Devin Hester (wrist) and running backs Steven Jackson (illness) and Patrick DiMarco (illness).

Eric Weems
News
Wide receiver Eric Weems has agreed to a new two-year contract with the Falcons, according to a report by ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure

Weems made $730,000 last season, when he had 10 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 10. 

Robert Alford
News
Falcons cornerback Robert Alford is expected to train with recently retired cornerback Ryan Clark in Louisiana this offseason, reports ESPN. The former Steelers corner announced his retirement on Wednesday and is expected to serve as an analyst on ESPN. Alford knows Clark through his brother, former Saints corner Fred Booker, who was Clark's college roommate at LSU.

"All the advice and things I do have to offer him he's going to get, from helping him watch film to helping him understand where he was beat on certain plays, to how he can improve himself, physically," Clark said. "But also the mental approach to the game. So I'm excited about getting an opportunity to work with him. Anytime you get a chance to work with a true friend, somebody you've known a long time, it's exciting."

Levine Toilolo
News
The Falcons have been active in changing their tight end depth chart this offseason.

While starting tight end Levine Toilolo is still on the roster, Bear Pascoe and Kyle Miller are gone. The Falcons have since added Jacob Tamme, Tony Moeaki, Mickey Shuler Jr. and Beau Gardner to the roster.

Toilolo progressed as a blocker in his second season in the NFL in 2014, but he never developed into the red-zone threat the team envisioned. He had just two touchdowns in 16 games.

Although, it seems first-year coach Dan Quinn feels the 6-foot-8 Toilolo might have better offensive numbers moving forward.

"It’s all about pad level for him," Quinn said, per AJC.com. "He’s come in, and he’s been ready to work. I’ve been anxiously waiting to see what he can do."

Phillip Adams
News
The Falcons signed a couple of players with hopes of bolstering a defense that ranked dead last in the NFL a season ago. 

Atlanta announced that it has signed contracts with defensive end Adrian Clayborn and cornerback Phillip Adams.

Clayborn's 2014 season ended early due to a biceps injury. Adams, a journeyman entering his sixth NFL season, appeared in 12 games for the Jets in 2014 and totaled 24 tackles and one interception. 

Clayborn played the entire 2013 season and recorded 64 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks. 

Jonathan Scott
News
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Southward had 23 tackles, one sack and two pass defenses last year. 

Jacob Tamme
News
The Falcons announced they've signed tight end Tony Moeaki after earlier announcing the signing of tight end Jacob Tamme. Moeaki, 27, played in six games for the Seahawks last season, catching eight passes for 134 yards and a touchdown.

He hasn't made a big impact since 2012, when he had 33 grabs for 453 yards and a touchdown with Kansas City. Moeaki and Tamme join Levine Toilolo in Atlanta's tight end group.

Adam Replogle
News
The Falcons trimmed their roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Pat Angerer, DL Nosa Eguae, RB Maurice Hagens, CB Jordan Mabin, WR Freddie Martino S Kimario McFadden, OL Pat McQuistan, TE Jacob Pedersen, OL Adam Replogle, DL Donte Rumph, LB Yawin Smallwood, RB Josh Vaughan, CB Ricardo Allen, S Sean Baker, WR Jeremy Ebert, G Harland Gunn, OT Terren Jones, WR Bernard Reedy, DT Travian Robertson, TE Mickey Shuler, LB Jacques Smith, WR Geraldo Boldewijn
Tevin Coleman
News
The Falcons have signed third-round pick Tevin Coleman to his rookie contract, the team announced on Tuesday. Terms of the contract are unknown.

Coleman, a running back out of Indiana, broke the school record in rushing yards in 2014 with 2,036. 

Sean Renfree

Allen Bradford
News
The Falcons signed linebacker Allen Bradford on Friday, reuniting coach Dan Quinn with one of his former Seahawk defensive players.

Bradford was a sixth-round pick by the Buccaneers in the 2011 draft. Raheem Morris, the Bucs' coach at the time, is now on Quinn's staff with the Falcons.

Bradford has been on the Giants, Browns and Jaguars, as well as several stints on the Seahawks' practice squad and active roster. The Seahawks converted Bradford from running back to linebacker in 2011. 

Desmond Trufant
News
Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant suffered a hand injury during Monday’s game against the Packers.

After the game, Trufant had his right hand heavily wrapped. He said the hand was swollen, but not broken, reports ESPN.

Trufant did not leave the game because of the injury, but his status for Week 15 against the Steelers has yet to be determined.

Mickey Shuler
News
Mickey Shuler Jr. is back for his second stint with the Falcons. While the 2010 seventh-round pick will be battling for a roster spot in training camp, first-year coach Dan Quinn already seems impressed with the 6-foot-4, 247-pound tight end.

"(Shuler) has come back in, and he looks strong," Quinn said, per the AJC.com. "We’ll get a better evaluation of him when we get into camp. I have a sense that he may really thrive as a blocker in this system. It will be interesting to see what he can do."

Shuler has just two catches for 44 yards in nine career games (three starts).

The Falcons could be without two key components of their defense when OTAs start this week.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, first-round pick Vic Beasley and free-agent signee Brooks Reed may not be present when voluntary practices kick off.

Beasley has yet to sign his rookie contract, which could keep him away from the team's facility. Reed is dealing with a groin injury that could keep off of the practice field.

Reed's absence is understandable due to to it being an injury. Beasley, however, is a different issue since there is little to negotiate due to the rookie wage scale. 

The remaining draft picks the Falcons selected have signed. 

Jalen Collins
News
Falcons coach Dan Quinn said cornerback Jalen Collins was hed out of Friday's rookie minicamp practice for precautionary reasons, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter.

Quinn said Collins will be ready by training camp. 

Collins was selected in the second round of this year's NFL draft.

Falcons linebacker Joplo Bartu had a two-game suspension for an alcohol related offense rescinded but was fined $50,000, per NFL.com.

Bartu pleaded no contest to driving under the influence last season and received a two-day suspended sentence and 12 months of probation.

According to an NFL and NFLPA agreement, players had until Nov. 1, 2014 to resolve DUIs for them to be accepted under the previous policy and for a suspension not to be issued. Bartu needed to submit his plea agreement before November but he did not go in front of judge before the deadline and was suspended in March.

Bartu was third on the Falcons last season with 83 tackles.

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said left tackle Sam Baker, who missed the entire 2014 season with a torn patella tendon, is recovering well, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Sam is healing up well,” Dimitroff said. “He’s a guy that’s focused. He’s been in there all the time … He’s really focused with trying to get back on track.”

Jake Matthews, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2014 draft, took over at left tackle after Baker suffered the injury in a preseason game. It's unclear whether Baker can reclaim his job once fully healthy. 

"It will be interesting to see how both players fit in the new zone-blocking scheme that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan plans to implement," the paper said.

Grady Jarrett
News
The Falcons are touting rookie defensive tackle Grady Jarrett as potentially one of the steals of the draft. And they have the ammunition to back up their claim.

The just-signed Clemson product racked up 207 tackles, including 29.5 for losses, 5.5 sacks and 37 quarterback pressures during his college career. But his 6-foot frame prevented him from being selected higher than the fifth round.

Jarrett topped the list of the biggest draft steals produced by ProFootballFocus.com. Its statistical breakdown revealed that he was in the Top 5 in both run stop percentage and pass rushing productivity against premier competition. He was the only player to rank that high in both categories.

He understands, however, that such numbers mean nothing now. He most prove they can be translated into production at the NFL level.

"I'm just happy to be here in Atlanta," Jarrett said. "The draft is just a thing of the past. You can only control what you control. What I control is what I do out there and I'm just trying to be a better player and help the team win."

Jake Matthews

Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews is recovering after undergoing foot surgery and will miss most of the team's offseason program, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Matthews played through a high ankle sprain last season and suffered another injury in the season finale.

"He decided to go through the procedure that he went through because he thought it was the best way to get himself back healthy by the beginning of the year," Dimitroff said. "We have no concerns that way."

Matthews, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, ranked 84th out of 84 tackles in 2014, per Pro Football Focus.

Devonta Freeman
News
With running back Steven Jackson no longer on the team, Falcons running back Devonta Freeman said he wants to be the lead back for the team, reports ESPN.

"Personally, I want to be the man. I want to be the guy," Freeman said. "I want to make my own name with the Atlanta Falcons. I want to go really, really far. I want to set the bar high. I just want to win a Super Bowl and maybe be the MVP one day. You just never know. I feel like I'm hungrier right now. I don't know what's gotten into me this offseason. I just feel like a whole new monster. And I ain't just talking."

Freeman added that he has high expectations for himself; all he needs is the opportunity. With Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff offering support that Freeman could be the team's full-time back, Freeman said he hopes to validate his support.

"If you're getting it from those guys, those guys are the big, top dogs. That just motivates me," Freeman said.

Tyson Jackson
News
New Falcons coach Dan Quinn met with the media at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Thursday and discussed his plans for the team's defensive players.

Steven Jackson

Although running back Steven Jackson remains a free agent, he doesn't want to retire, but he also wants to play for a winning team, reports ESPN.com.

"I don't want to go to a team that is rebuilding and needs me to come on and teach guys how to be professional," Jackson said. "I've done that. I've been more than vocal about wanting to help young guys, but at some point I have to be a little selfish. I want to be part of a winning team because when I do hang up my cleats, I can see a lot of people holding that over my head when a lot of it was out of my control."

Jackson, 31, has only been to the postseason once during his 11-year career and he hopes to find an opportunity on a playoff-caliber team.

"That's the thing," Jackson said. "I have all the things I've accomplished personally, but I've still never been on a team that won more than eight games. That would be definitely one of the things that I'm looking for is that opportunity in my next chapter."

Regardless of which team he plays for in 2015, he said there is one team he would like to end his career with.

"I definitely want to retire as a Ram," Jackson said. "It's definitely something I want and that would be to go back."

Jones is a two-time Pro Bowl player and can become a free agent after the 2015 season. Jones has had to deal with foot issues during his career, which Dimitroff said wasn't an issue.
