Here is the current list of practice squad players for Atlanta:

  • WR Christian Blake
  • S Chris Cooper
  • QB Danny Etling
  • OL Sean Harlow
  • DE Austin Larkin
  • DT Jacob Tuioti-Mariner
  • DT Justin Zimmer

Hope we add Chandler Miller. Surprised we kept Harlow over him, but maybe Sean’s last 2 preseason games were enough to keep him instead of Miller.

1 down, 1 to go.

Yeah. TBJ better make this **** PS.

Hopefully Quinn and TD are toying with us.

They’ve only listed guys that were already on our team before.

Hope that doesn’t mean the last three spots are from other teams...and maybe only two spots if you count the WR that was reported to have come to us from the Lions.

I wonder what's up w/ WR Brandon Powell then??? There were reports earlier we were adding him to the PS, but he wasn't listed by AF.com yet.

just not official yet :shrug:

I didn’t realize Cooper was eligible for the PS.  This is really good news if we have him stashed on the bench and can call him up if injury.

No he can't. Why is it so many here think "big back = fullback"?

He got blown onto his *** by backups trying to play fullback.

You beat me to this!

Did we actually sign Trash Harlow onto the practice squad? Dude was getting killed by backups of backups, he should have been out of the league by last season. Get the dude out of here. 

To be fair, he had a good last 2 games of preseason.

Thanks.

After looking up some stuff on Powell, I see that he's a smallish (5'8" 185lb) playmaker w/ really good speed & excellent quickness.

  • Very versatile player who projects as a slot receiver & return specialist.
  • Used a lot on end arounds, Wildcat, bubble screens, etc.
  • Former HB who takes pride in his blocking ability.
  • He doesn’t talk, according to coach Randy Shannon, he leads by example.
  • Described by various teammates as a warrior, a baller and a grinder.
  • NFL comparison: Darren Sproles

So, did we upgrade Green to Powell? Interesting. Worth a stash given Barner being the only decent returner option for us right now.

Yeah, that's pretty much my thoughts on the situation, too.

I wouldn’t mind picking up the QB Tyree Jackson. To me, he is a Cam Newton type player... big build and is a dual threat. He definitely needs time but putting him on the PS wouldn’t be bad.

Surprised they cut him. Someone might actually pick him up on active roster rather than PS.

Good start.  Definitely need one more DE since so few DL are under contract next year.

If we could develop a couple it would be radically helpful.

Tre Crawford and Miles. Liked both of them.

Not looking good for TBJ

Unfortunately, I’m thinking it’s not as well. 

I swear, if TBJ goes unsigned and trash *** Harlow is still on PS again...I’m...gonna...

...still watch this season and hope it was a good decision.

Fingers crossed...

Why would he come here? He had as good of a showing as any player can hope for, in the only chance he got, and he was still let go. What’s the point of coming here when he obviously has no shot?
