Falcons’ Roster Predictions for Final Cuts

Thursday night the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Baltimore Ravens 20-19 in their final preseason bout. Over the next few days every NFL team has to cut down to 53 players for final cuts. Many players shined Thursday night that have been on the bubble since training camp and that might have just earned them a roster spot.
