Falcons Sign Five To Futures Deals

The Atlanta Falcons announced Monday that they’ve signed five players to futures contracts for the 2020 season including QB Danny Etling

The full list of futures signings includes:

  1. QB Danny Etling
  2. OL Lukayus McNeil
  3. TE Carson Meier
  4. DB C.J. Reavis 
  5. RB Craig Reynolds

Etling, 25, was selected with the No. 219 overall pick in the seventh round of last year’s draft by the Patriots. 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 this past January only to cut him loose during the preseason. 

Etling was later claimed off of waivers by the Falcons before being waived and re-signed to their practice squad. He had a brief stint on the active roster while Matt Ryan was hurt. 

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.
