The Atlanta Falcons reached an injury settlement with center James Stone today. The roster currently sits at 88 men, which leaves the Falcons with two open roster spots prior to when players report to XFINITY Training Camp on July 27.
The former Tennessee Volunteer was originally signed by Atlanta as a college free agent following the 2014 Draft. During his two seasons with the team, he saw action in 19 games with 10 starts. Stone suffered a season ending knee injury in December of 2015, and was placed on injured reserve.
Following the move with Stone, the team now has 15 offensive linemen on the roster, including nine guards/centers. Atlanta bolstered the interior of their line by signing three-time Pro Bowl center Alex Mack this offseason, and also adding G Wes Schweitzer during the draft.
