Falcons Roster Cuts: John Parker Wilson Among Final Round

The Atlanta Falcons have whittled their roster down to 53, and longtime third-stringer John Parker Wilson is the biggest name on the board. Expect him to come back as the practice squad quarterback. Here's the rest of the list:

Center Brett Romberg, safety Rafael Bush, wide receiver Kevin Cone, wide receiver Drew Davis, guard Andrew Jackson, LB Robert James, defense end Emmanuel Stephens, tackle Jose Valdez and quarterback John Parker Wilson. The team also reached an injury settlement with tight end Ryan Winterswyk.    

Former sometimes quarterback Kerry Meier could serve as the team's emergency passer, with only Matt Ryan and Chris Redman left on the roster. But if the team falls that far, all is pretty much lost anyway, so get ready for the Jacquizz Rodgers wildcat experience, which sounds awesome to me.

Jackson's name is a little bit of a surprise, as he was actually drafted this year. The Falcons have cut very few drafted rookies during Thomas Dimitroff's time in town.
