Falcons release Brandon Fusco


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons announced Monday that they have released veteran offensive guard Brandon Fusco.


Fusco, 30, started each of the seven games he was healthy for the Falcons in 2018 after signing with the team as a free agent prior to the season. Fusco suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the Falcons' win against the New York Giants in Week 7.

This offseason, the Falcons signed three offensive guards in free agency, bringing in James Carpenter, Jamon Brown and Adam Gettis. Atlanta also used its first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft - No. 14 overall - to select former Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom.
