Falcons release depth chart with offensive line change

The Falcons have released their depth chart ahead of the upcoming matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

After a disappointing 26-18 loss to the Saints on Thanksgiving Day, there has been a few changes made to the depth chart.


Wes Schweitzer has replaced Jamon Brown as Atlanta's starting right guard. Brown has started nine of the Falcons' 10 games this season.

Brown was signed on the first day of free agency after starting eight games for the New York Giants in 2018 as the Falcons (3-9) hoped to shore up the interior of their offensive line.

Schweitzer was drafted in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of San Jose State. He's played several positions along the offensive line as a rotational guard and backup center.

Matt Bosher will also resume his punting duties as he was activated from injured reserve on Monday. Bosher injured his groin following Atlanta's 53-32 loss to the Texans in Week 5.
