The team announced a few moments ago that they are cutting tight end, Luke Stocker.

Stocker played a small role in Atlanta last season — mostly as an extra blocker. He only had 8 catches for 53 yards and no scores, which is far too little production for a guy with a $3.35 million cap hit. The Falcons will incur a penalty of $750,000, but the $2.6 million they save makes this move a no brainer. This was probably the most expected cut of the offseason, and with Hooper leaving for Cleveland — 2018 UDFA Jaeden Graham becomes the most experienced tight end on the roster. Expect the Falcons to go bargain bin shopping in free agency and potentially target a replacement (or two) in the draft.
Here’s a couple of names on our radar for the 2020 Draft at the tight end position.
