We are less than 24 hours from when free-agent signings can become official around the league, but the Falcons don’t have any rumored deals on the docket outside of one of their own as Atlanta tendered Olamide Zaccheaus. However, they are creating some much-needed cap space to sign some free agents eventually.

The Falcons announced Tuesday the team has released Tyeler Davison.

Davison joined the Falcons in 2019 and was supposed to be the run-stuffing interior defender along a defensive front that desperately needed bolstering. During his first two years in Atlanta, Davison started 27 games and was largely productive defending the run. However, he fell out of the rotation, making him expendable.

The release will create around $4 million in cap savings and $1.2 million in dead money against this year’s salary cap. Given the Falcons’ slew of needs, Davison was always going to be released.
