Perhaps a little lost in the buzz of the Falcons' beginning offseason workouts was a note from the NFL on Monday that offseason rosters have expanded from 80 players to 90 players for each team. As of 4 pm Tuesday, the rosters will be allowed to expand to 90.
There are no anticipated changes to the allowed 53-man rosters for the regular season, however the roster limit in the preseason will decrease from 90 to 80 following the third preseason game. Final cutdowns from 80 to 53 will come after the final preseason game, less than a week before the regular season begins.
Atlanta currently has 65 players on the roster.
