Wright, 24, was released by the Cleveland Browns as they cut down their roster to reach the league's 53-man limit for the regular season. He was entering his second season with the Browns and had switched to center upon joining the organization after starting for three seasons at tackle while playing at the University of Tulsa. The Falcons list the 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive lineman as a tackle, but they value versatility along their offensive line.

With Wright in the fold, here's a look at the 15 players currently on the Falcons' practice squad:

  • CB Delrick Abrams Jr.
  • QB Kurt Benkert
  • S Jamal Carter
  • DE Austin Edwards
  • WR Juwan Green
  • CB Tyler Hall
  • OL Sean Harlow
  • CB Josh Hawkins
  • QB Kyle Lauletta
  • P Cameron Nizialek
  • TE Jared Pinkney
  • LB Edmond Robinson
  • WR Chris Rowland
  • OL John Wetzel
  • OT Willie Wright
