According to several sources close to the Falcons, cuts are coming, and there may be some that are unexpected.

The Falcons began these moves last night by cutting Robert Alford to save nearly $8 million in 2019. Then, they provided us with a little shocker by announcing they have released Matt Bryant as well, saving close to $3 million.
I don’t expect the Falcons to be anywhere close to finished, and the Bryant move was probably just one of the cuts these sources were alluding two. There is still a bevy of potential roster cuts that would save the Falcons significant money like Vic Beasley, Brooks Reed, Ryan Schraeder, and Brandon Fusco.
With the #Falcons making moves to improve their cap, watch these other names who could be released/dealt:
Vic Beasley ($12M – no dead $)
Brooks Reed ($4.5M – $900k dead $)
Ryan Schraeder ($4M – $3.8M dead $)
Brandon Fusco ($3.2M – $1.5M dead $)
Matt Bosher ($2.5M – no dead $)
