The Atlanta Falcons have added wide receiver Drew Davis and offensive tackle Bryce Harris to their practice squad.

The Atlanta Falcons have signed wide receiver Drew Davis and offensive tackle Bryce Harris to their practice squad after the two cleared waivers on Saturday.

Cut day in the NFL was Friday, as teams had to make decisions on who to keep and who to let go as they trimmed their roster to 53 players with the 2012 NFL season set to kick-off next weekend. But all is not lost as some players who didn't make the final cut at the end of training camp will be signed to a team's practice squad.

According to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report, Davis appears to have been caught in a numbers game and the team also liked Harris as he fits the mold of the kind of players the Falcons want on their offensive line:

Harris is part of the new mold of athletic and bigger offensive linemen that the Falcons started signing this offseason. He is 6-6, 300 pounds and was selected to the All-WAC first team by the league coaches and named to Phil Steele's All-WAC first team after starting in all 13 games at left tackle as a senior at Fresno State.

*UPDATE*

According to Jay Adams of the Atlanta Falcons, along with Harris and Davis, the Falcons have also added Marcus Jackson, Micanor Regis and Peyton Thompson to the practice squad as well.
