The Atlanta Falcons made a roster move on Friday night as they signed defensive tackle Conrad Obi. Obi is from Georgia as he went to Grayson High School in Loganville. The Falcons are needing some depth as defensive tackles Vance Walker and Corey Peters are battling injuries during training camp. Walkers ailment is unknown, but Peters has a left foot injury.

The Arizona Cardinals signed Obi as an undrafted free agent shortly after the draft, however was cut back in early June. Obi appeared in 41 games during his career with the Colorado Buffaloes, and his senior year was his best where he started seven games, had 31 total tackles, 17 of them being solo, had a forced fumble and had one tackle for a loss.
