Falcons Place S Ricardo Allen On IR, Sign LB Bruce Carter & S Sharrod Neasman


The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday that they’ve placed S Ricardo Allen on injured reserve and signed LB Bruce Carter and S Sharrod Neasman.

Other roster moves for the Falcons include:

The Falcons’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. QB Kurt Benkert
  2. OT Daniel Brunskill
  3. TE Jaeden Graham
  4. TE Alex Gray (International)
  5. WR Devin Gray
  6. C J.C. Hassenauer
  7. DB Ryan Neal
  8. DB Taveze Calhoun
  9. DT Jacob Tuioti-Mariner
  10. LB Richie Brown
  11. CB Deante Burton

Allen, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2014. He was waived a few months after he was drafted and later signed to the Falcons’ practice squad at the start of the 2014 season.

Allen returned to the Falcons on a one-year exclusive rights contract the past few years and tested the open market as a restricted free agent this offseason before signing his one-year tender worth $2.914 million.

The Falcons and Allen later agreed to a three-year, $19.5 million extension last month.

In 2018, Allen appeared in three games for the Falcons and recorded 17 tackles, an interception and three pass defenses.
