Falcons Bring In Five For Tryouts

The Falcons announced they are trying out LB Sharif Finch, LB Jeff Holland, OL Wyatt Miller, WR Jaleel Scott and DL Miles Brown on Tuesday.

Finch, 25, signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Temple in 2018. The team waived him shortly after and he caught on with the Titans.

Finch spent two seasons with Tennessee before the team waived him in December of 2019. The Bengals tried to claim Finch, but ultimately released him due to a failed physical.

Finch signed with the Raiders during the 2020 offseason but didn’t make the final roster. After a brief stint on the Bears’ practice squad, Finch signed on to the Jets practice squad in November, where he finished the season. The Jets waived him last week.

In 2020, Finch appeared in three games for the Jets, totaling just one tackle.

Holland, 23, went undrafted out of Auburn back in 2018. He later agreed to a contract with the Broncos, but was cut loose coming out of the preseason. 

Holland was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals. From there, he had brief stints with the Bills and Chargers before joining the Rams in 2019. 

Los Angeles brought Holland back on a futures contract in 2020, but waived him in May of that year. 

In 2018, Holland appeared in three games for the Broncos and recorded six tackles and no sacks.

Scott, 26, was selected in the fourth round out of New Mexico State by the Ravens in 2018. He was entering the third season of a four-year, $3,040,380 contract when Baltimore waived him coming out of camp.

Scott caught on with the Jets practice squad and bounced on off throughout the season. He re-signed with New York on a futures deal for 2021 but was cut in May. 

For his career, Scott has appeared in four games and caught two passes for 22 yards and no touchdowns.
