ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Falcons have released S Thomas DeCoud.
DeCoud, 28, signed a five-year contract worth $17.5 million that included $4 million guaranteed with the Falcons back in 2012. He was also selected a Pro Bowl that year, but really struggled a lot this season in both tackling and coverage.
Pro Football Focus has DeCoud rated as the No. 83 safety in the league out of 86 players qualifying players last season.
