Falcons Re-Sign LS Liam McCullough

The Falcons don’t have too many free agent decisions to make from their 2023 roster, and they got an important one out of the way today by re-signing long snapper Liam McCullough. As an exclusive rights free agent, McCullough’s only option was to sign his qualifying offer and return to Atlanta for 2024.

McCullough has been around since 2020, when he went undrafted out of Ohio State, but because he spent his rookie and sophomore seasons on practice squads in Las Vegas and Pittsburgh, McCullough only has two accrued seasons, qualifying him as an exclusive rights free agent. Both of those accrued seasons have come in the last two years with the Falcons.

McCullough signed with the Falcons in 2022, replacing former Pro Bowl long snapper Josh Harris, who had departed for the Chargers in free agency. The 26-year-old McCullough has played every game in the last two years for Atlanta, becoming a key member of a Falcons special teams trio that includes kicker Younghoe Koo and punter Bradley Pinion.

The team has two more exclusive rights free agents to handle this offseason. Atlanta will need to make a decision on whether or not to extend qualifying offers to linebacker Nathan Landman and center Ryan Neuzil, as well. Landman finished third on the team in tackles this year, starting 14 games in his sophomore season. Neuzil proved to be a crucial depth piece, as well, starting four games in 2023. The Falcons also have three restricted free agents (quarterback Feleipe Franks, offensive tackle Ethan Greenidge, and defensive tackle Albert Huggins) that they will need to make decisions on this offseason.
