Falcons' practice squad: Agnone, Buckley, Strickland, Woods, Nance, Valdez, Bush, Stephens.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons today established an eight-player practice squad consisting of tight end Robbie Agnone, wide receiver Tim Buckley, running back Dimitri Nance, wide receiver Andy Strickland, tackle Jose Valdez, safety Rafael Bush, defensive end Emmanuel Stephens and linebacker Bear Woods.

Agnone was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Washington Redskins following the 2009 NFL Draft. He spent the 2009 season on the New England Patriots practice squad and was signed by the Falcons on July 31.

Buckley, Nance, Bush, Stephens and Woods were all signed by the Falcons as rookie free agents following the 2010 NFL Draft.

Strickland was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as a rookie free agent in 2009. He was signed to the Falcons practice squad on Dec. 22, 2009.

Valdez spent the entire 2009 season on the Falcons practice squad after being signed as a rookie free agent on April 27, 2009.

Because Wolfe didn't do **** in preseason. Strickland did.

Over the preseason:

Strickland - 5 catches for 44 yards.

Wolfe - 3 catches for 55 yards.

The only reasonable explanation is that Strickland had better practices than Wolfe. They had similar stats over the preseason.

The ONLY? Maybe Strickland can block better? Maybe he plays special teams better? Maybe he knows the playbook better since he was on the team for part of last year?

...and were he did display all of those attributes? Most probably on practice, because on the field they showed me the same. Edited by Patro

I expected Valdez because he really earned it.

I guessed on Nance and Woods

Thomas D. kinda let it slip on Bush

Strickland over Bergeron is a surprise. Maybe Bergeron is no longer eligible, or they figure he had enough chances.

Buckley surprise

Stephens over Lucas a little surprise didn't get much on either during preseason.

If I had thought it through, but I didn't, Agnone because they are kinda thin at TE

what i see is more yards with less catches which means he gets down field.

buckley had 2 catches for 16 yards.

i'm fine with strickland, but why the hill did we sign suckley over wolfe, was he picked up?

Yeah, I'm really surprised we kept Buckley over Wolfe as well. That's honestly the biggest surprise to me out of everything that's happened so far with the overall roster.

The only thing I can figure is that maybe we'll be cutting Buckley after Week 1 and replacing him with whoever gets cut to make room for Babineaux's return...
