We'd thought we had a look at the Atlanta Falcons 80-man roster, but then the team went and picked up veteran defensive backs James Sanders and Kelvin Hayden. Thus, the team announced Thursday that former Louisville Cardinals quarterback Adam Froman and UNLV Rebels offensive lineman Matt Murphy must seek opportunity elsewhere.
Froman has likely earned a consideration as the practice squad passer, but the pickups of Sanders and Hayden likely just accelerated the process of sending him down that path. I'll be totally honest and say I still don't know a great deal about Murphy, but if he made it through several rounds of cuts so far, the team must at least think something of him.
The next round of roster cuts will come on Saturday, when the team has to put together its best 53. It's a good thing the Falcons play the Ravens Thursday night, giving them an extra few hours of evaluation.
