The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have signed outside linebacker O’Brien Schofield. The team has also waived running back Terron Wardicon-article-link.gif.

Schofield was originally selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the fourth round (130th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft out of Wisconsin. He spent the first five years of his career with the Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks, posting 86 total tackles (70 solo), 13.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and one pass defensed.

Schofield was signed by the Falcons last offseason and was productive on the field during the 2015 season. He played in all 16 games, with 10 starts and tallied 28 total tackles (22 solo), two sacks, and one forced fumble.

Ward was signed by the Falcons as a college free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft. Last season, he had 29 carries for 95 yards and one rushing touchdown.

We sure are making lots of interesting moves man.  Weird with this Ward thing.  This off the news of Nordly Capi as seen below...

As storied as any other tradition in Falcons history, the inconsequential practice squad shuffling has struck again. As we mentioned yesterday, the Falcons got rid of GOAT Nordly Capi and undersized corner Devonte Johnson.

Sigh.

Who did they add?

Falcons Sign OT Carter Bykowski & LB Davis Tull to practice squad. The team waived DE Nordly Capi & CB Devonte Johnson off practice squad.

  •  Capi likely became unnecessary with the addition of O’Brien Schofield. Johnson seemed like a precarious scheme fit, and failing to push for a roster spot with Atlanta’s weak corner depth should be enough to know he had no chance to make an impact with the team.

Carter Bukowski is a big OL that has been a mainstay on the bottom of the Minnesota Vikings roster after being taken in the 7th round by the San Francisco 49ers a few years ago. He may provide some upside, and, at the very least, knows his way around in the pros.

We covered Atlanta’s workout with David Tull yesterday, was a former Saints 5th round selection. Perhaps a project for old defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, the Saints felt the need to quickly move on from the pass rusher. He’s an athletic player with the upside Tyler Starr would simply never have. It is an interesting pickup as Tull may push for an active roster spot.

Our TE's came up big on Sunday a 3rd RB probably wouldn't see the field much so I get it.... Still perplexed about Perkins tho. Has he touched the field at all?

Nope Perkins has not touched the field yet. He has been on the Inactive List the first 2 regular-season games.
