The Atlanta Falcons officially placed OT Carter Bykowski on the reserve/retired list on Thursday.
This move will ensure that the Falcons hold Bykowski’s rights in the event he elects to unretire and return to the NFL at some point.
Bykowski, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2013. He spent a year and a half in San Francisco before he was signed off of the 49ers’ practice squad by the Vikings back in December of 2014.
Bykowski could go on to spent the 2015 season in Minnesota but was, unfortunately, cut loose in September of last year and signed to the Falcons’ practice squad. Atlanta brought Bykowski back on a future/reserve contract this past February.
Bykowski never appeared in an NFL game.
