Many Atlanta fans love the guy, but it looks to be Bernard “Speedy” Reedy and the Falcons are going their separate ways. The team announced that they have waived Reedy and signed offensive lineman Eric Lefeld, per the Atlanta Falcons official twitter.

The Falcons will still have to make 22 roster cuts before September 5, the final day to do so. While Reedy made some phenomenal plays during practices in Atlanta, he could never overcome the players around him. Leonard Hankerson, Justin Hardy, Eric Weems, and Devin Hester will probably be the receivers to make the team behind Roddy White and Julio Jones.
The Falcons signed Eric Lefeld, who will likely be playing majority of the final preseason game due to injuries on the offensive line. Lefeld was solid in college, as he earned All-Big East honors in 2012. Lefeld most likely will not make the team, as Atlanta just needs to put in a body against the Ravens. There will be many more rosters cuts coming soon, so stay tuned.
