As Falcons coach Dan Quinn indicated, no plans to bring in a safety such as Eric Reid at this time despite season-ending injuries to Ricardo Allen (Achilles) and Keanu Neal (ACL). The team re-signed Sharrod Neasman, a former undrafted player who played in 14 games with the Falcons the previous two seasons and also spent time with the Saints. Neasman more of a special teams player who can add depth at safety. Team also signed linebacker Bruce Carter, a former second round draft pick of the Cowboys who was last with the Jets and has 311 career tackles (seven seasons). Falcons placed Allen on IR and waived rookie linebacker Richard Jarvis. They also signed linebacker Richie Brown and cornerback Deante Burton to the practice squad while waiving Christian Blake from the practice squad.
