Atlanta Falcons Cut Two, Sign Rookie Free Agent Michael Calvin

The Atlanta Falcons continued shaking up their roster after the 2012 NFL Draft on Tuesday, signing undrafted free agent wide receiver Michael Calvin from California, and cutting long snapper Scott Albritton and offensive lineman Kyle Jolly.

Here's the quick bio on Calvin from AtlantaFalcons.com, and if you're curious how he got the contract with such pedestrian numbers, that 40 time might have a small something to do with it:

Calvin, 6-3, 215 pounds, played in 37 games with 10 starts and totaled 42 receptions for 528 yards with one touchdown during his career at California. He also recorded three tackles, a forced fumble and a blocked kick. In 2011, he had his most productive season with career highs of 20 receptions, 269 receiving yards and one touchdown. Calvin posted a blistering 4.32 in the 40-yard dash at Cal’s 2012 Pro Day.

Neither Jolly or Albritton were ever major factors for the Falcons. Both were scout team players, and with the addition of two new offensive linemen as well as a new long snapper in Josh Harris, both were cut to make room.
