Falcons sign seven players to practice squad


The Atlanta Falcons have filled seven slots on their 10-man practice squad the team announced on Sunday, one day after it trimmed its roster to meet the NFL's 53-man requirements.


The seven players signed to Atlanta's practice squad were all with the team throughout the preseason. The Falcons will continue to fill out the remaining three spots on their practice squad.

Here is the current list of practice squad players for Atlanta:

Blake, Harlow, Tuioti-Mariner and Zimmer have all spent time on the Falcons practice squad before. In his second preseason with the team, Blake led all wide receivers with 11 catches, gaining 82 yards and scoring one touchdown. Tuioti-Mariner and Zimmer were each among the defensive standouts this preseason. Zimmer finished with 11 tackles, .5 sacks and three quarterback hits while Tuioti-Mariner recorded eight tackles, one sack and two quarterback hits.

Cooper, Etling and Larkin each joined the Falcons this offseason. Cooper drew praise from coach Dan Quinn for his positional versatility as both a safety and a nickel corner in the secondary, and Larkin was among the best defensive linemen this preseason, recording 11 tackles, two tackles for a loss, one sack and three quarterback hits. The Falcons claimed Etling off of waivers after he was released by the New England Patriots. The former LSU quarterback was 17-of-31 for 193 yards and one touchdown pass; Etling also ran for 115 yards on 17 carries.

The Falcons' 2019 roster is constantly evolving and we've amassed all the players in one gallery that will be updated throughout the year.
