090217: And Then There Were 53
So, apparently there was some big secret going on at The Branch today as 4pm came and went and it was after 5pm ET before we got the Final Falcons Roster. I didn’t see any huge surprises, especially on the release list. Several lists with, waived for this and that, injured, suspended, etc. Jalen Collins is still on the team, al biet suspended for 10 games, but that gives us a buffer for later in the season. Another surprise, maybe only to me, was Ra’Shede Hageman. He is on the commissioner’s exempt list. Which is, I just learned, a holding pattern. Shede’s domestic abuse charge from August of 2016 was wrapped in the courts, but continues to be reviewed in the league. So, Shede is on the team, but can’t play right now….don’t get me started on this.
Congrats to everyone that made the team. I will mark up my roster from earlier in the week, as I think it is going to be pretty close – short of the traded additions I didn’t anticipate. Of note, RB Brian Hill made the roster, WRs Andre Roberts and Nick Williams, BEN GARLAND is the starting RG!!! LBs include LaRoy Reynolds and undrafted rookie Jermaine Grace that earned his spot in Thursday’s game for sure. Another guy that solidified his spot Thursday was Blidi Wreh-Wilson at CB.
Andre Roberts is the official returner for now, and I am sure he will get some help from Justin Hardy and Nick Williams along the way.
Practice squad will be announced later, so see who earns a spot there.
Below is the current roster. Again, congrats to everyone…new and old….welcome to The Brotherhood.
