Falcons Trim Roster To 76

MONDAY, 3:21pm: In an unusual twist, the Falcons announced today (via Twitter) that Terrell Manning, whose name is listed below as one of the team’s roster casualties, is actually still on the team, since the transaction was never sent into the league office.

The club waived defensive back Jonathon Mincy today, according to a press release, but is still at 76 players since Manning remains on the roster. Presumably, the club will officially cut Manning tomorrow in order to get to a 75-man squad, but we’ll see if the Falcons have a change of heart at all.

SUNDAY, 4:46pm: The Falcons have announced a series of roster moves, trimming their roster to 76 players:


  • Boris Anyama, LB
  • Marquez Clark, WR
  • Michael Ford, RB
  • John Harris, WR
  • Warren Herring, DT
  • Derrick Hopkins, NT
  • Matt Huffer, T
  • Michael Lee, CB
  • Eric Lefeld, G
  • Terrell Manning, LB
  • Sam Meredith, DE
  • Valerian Ume-Ezeoke, C


  • Mickey Shuler, TE

Placed on Physically Unable To Perform List:

  • Lamar Holmes, T

Atlanta will still need to move one more player off its roster before Tuesday’s deadline.
