We are carrying only 4 DTs on the roster right now


Recommended Posts


Grady Jackson


Jonathan Babineaux

Kindal Moorehead

James Jefferson

The only "big body" is Grady - what happens if he gets hurt? how will we stop the run? would love to hear your guys opinions.....I am sure some will say Jefferson can play the nose but he is 6'1 and 295lbs - kind of light in the pants to play nose as are Babs & Moorehead.

I was wrong he's on the reserve non-football injury list.


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons today moved offensive lineman Renardo Foster to the reserve physically unable to perform list and moved defensive tackle Trey Lewis to the reserve non-football injury list.

Foster, 6-7, 340 pounds, was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Falcons last season. The Louisville alum competed in seven games in 2007 while starting in two at left tackle.

Lewis, 6-3, 323 pounds, was selected by the Falcons in the sixth round (185th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft. In nine games last season, he recorded 23 tackles (12 solo), one interception and one pass defensed.

The Falcons were in need of two roster moves to reach the NFL’s mandatory 75-man roster limit by today following the release of tight end Brad Listorti (August 11), wide receiver Joe Horn (August 19) and linebacker Isaac Brown (August 19). On Saturday, August 30, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. (EST), all NFL clubs will be required to reduce their roster size to a maximum of 53 players prior to the start of the regular season.

I thought he was on injured reserve which would mean Trey Lewis was "done" for the season - is that incorrect?

nope. hes on the non-football related injuries list. sometime later this season he will be able to be activated from that list (but wed obviously have to cut someone) and then he would be on the 53 man. when he will be eligible to rejoin the 53, though, i have no idea. J Mike might have to answer that. i want to say between week 4 and 8, my guess would be week 4 or 6. but i really am not sure.

I am not sure who Jason Jefferson is but he must be impressive to be a guy that TD and Smith decided to get barely a day after cuts happened. Jason is a guy who replaced Rashad Moore, Tim Anderson, Montavious Stanley. I thought Moore did a decent job in the preseason, and we know Stanley is a hustler, so I think this Jefferson guy is one of those hidden talents who just needs more of an opportunity to prove himself.
