Falcons Add James Rodgers To Practice Squad

The Atlanta Falcons have signed James Rodgers - brother of running back and return specialist Jacquizz Rodgers - to the practice squad as a wide receiver, according to their official site. Rodgers, an undrafted free agent in 2012, saw significant time at the receiver position in all four of the Falcons' preseason games this summer but was cut on August 31 during the final move to establish Atlanta's 53-man roster. Per the Falcons' site, he'll join brother Jacquizz as a multiple record holder in his time with the Beavers:

He established a school record with 222 career receptions, including an OSU record 91 catches in 2009. He also set the Oregon State career record with 6,377 all-purpose yards and is the first player in OSU history with 1,000 yards rushing and 2,000 yards receiving.

Currently Jacquizz Rodgers is working in the return game, but James also fielded punts and kickoffs during the preseason.
