Falcons tied for second in roster turnover from last year

Recommended Posts

From ESPN:

Sure enough, I later discovered the Dolphins lead the NFL in new blood. ESPN's John Clayton informed me 26 players, essentially half the roster, weren't on the team last year. They didn't experience rookie coach Cam Cameron and his proclamation that he wanted his players to "fail forward fast."

The Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons are tied for second with 20 new players apiece on their current rosters. The Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens have 18 newcomers each.

The rest of the AFC East underwent far less turnover. The New York Jets added 15 new players, the New England Patriots 14 and the Buffalo Bills 12.

The Dallas Cowboys have the fewest new players with eight. The San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints have added only 10.

The Dolphins' 26 new players include 11 rookies, fourth-most on rosters as of Monday. The Chiefs have 15 rookies, the Indianapolis Colts and Ravens have 12 rookies each.

Of the 43 players who started at least one game for Miami last year, 18 remain on the roster.
