Falcons Training Camp Roster: Richard Medlin Signed

The Atlanta Falcons on Sunday announced that the team had signed running back Richard Medlin to a training camp contract. Medlin played his college ball at Fayetteville State and was in training camp last season with the New England Patriots. He was later picked up by the Miami Dolphins where he spent time on their practice squad. The Dolphins waived Medlen this past May and he had been looking for work ever since.

The Falcons need some depth at running back after the team waived Robbie Frey and with Jason Snelling sidelined with some sort of lower leg injury.

Medlin could show up in the Falcons kick return competition at some point. He averaged nearly 42 yards per return during the 2008 season and ran back three kicks for touchdowns.
