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.

"(Shuler) has come back in, and he looks strong," Quinn said, per the "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).
