2012 Falcons Roster: Vince Manuwai Released By Atlanta

Veteran offensive guard Vince Manuwai's stint with the Falcons was cut short on Saturday when the team announced his release. Manuwai was signed by the club in March and was considered a dark horse candidate to start at right guard for the Falcons. At the very least he was expected to provide some depth and veteran experience for a position that was a problem for the team last season.

However, the team decided to go a different direction on Saturday cutting ties with the eight-year veteran who has 105 career starts on his resume. Manuwai opened camp listed third at right guard on the team's depth chart behind Garrett Reynolds and rookie draft pick Peter Konz.

Reynolds played in all 16 games for the Falcons during the 2011 season and started seven times.
