Falcons Place QB Danny Etling & DT Tyeler Davison On COVID-19 List


The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday that they’ve placed QB Danny Etling and DT Tyeler Davison on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Etling, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Patriots back in 2019. He agreed to a four-year, $2,564,028 contract that included a $104,028 signing bonus with the Patriots, but was released coming out of the preseason. 

The Patriots later re-signed Etling to their practice squad. New England re-signed Etling to a futures deal last year but he was, once again, waived later claimed by the Falcons. 

Atlanta brought Etling back on a futures contract this past January. 

During his college career at Purdue and LSU, Etling threw for 7,076 yards while completing 57.9 percent of his passes to go along with 43 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

Davison, 27, was a fifth-round draft pick by the Saints in 2015 out of Fresno State. He played out the final year of his four-year rookie contract before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Falcons last year. 

The Falcons re-signed Davison to a three-year extension this past March. 

In 2019, Davison appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 55 tackles, one sack, and a fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 52 receiver out of 114 qualifying players.
