Falcons waive Mike Meyer and Jermaine Grace, add Garrett Grayson to practice squad


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Falcons announced a trio of roster moves on Tuesday afternoon ahead of their upcoming matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Atlanta has waived kicker Mike Meyer and linebacker Jermaine Grace, and signed quarterback Garrett Grayson to the practice squad.


Grayson was initially signed to the Falcons' practice squad in the middle of October, but he was waived last week to make room for Meyer. A third-round pick by New Orleans in 2015, Grayson set nearly every passing record during his time at Colorado State, throwing for 9,190 yards and 64 touchdowns.

Meyer, who performed well with the Falcons during the preseason, was added to the practice squad last week when starting kicker Matt Bryant's status for the game against the Cowboys was a bit uncertain. Grace was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Miami this offseason, but he was hampered by a hamstring injury for a chunk of the year.
