The Atlanta Falcons also announced Tuesday that they’ve signed DT Jimmy Staten to their practice squad.
Staten, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was unable to make the team’s 53-man roster but was later added to their practice squad. Seattle elected to bring him back on a future/reserve contract only to waive him soon after.
Staten has had brief stints with the Giants, Patriots and Chiefs before he caught on with the Bears a few weeks into the regular season. He was one and off of the Bears’ practice squad for much of the season.
Staten has yet to appear in an NFL game.
