Falcons Tried Out 3 Including QBs Garrett Grayson & Mitch Leidner

The Atlanta Falcons worked out QBs Garrett Grayson, Trevor Knight, and Mitch Leidner on Wednesday, according to Howard Balzer.

  • The Falcons signed Knight to their practice squad.

Grayson, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Saints back in 2015. He managed to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season but wound up being among the team’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Saints later signed him to their practice squad at the start of the regular season. New Orleans signed him to a futures deal back in January but decided to cut him last week as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players

In 2015, Grayson was active for one game for the Saints.

Leidner, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Minnesota this March. Leidner previously tried out for the Ravens during their rookie minicamp but wasn’t signed to a contract following the session.

The Vikings signed him to a contract a few weeks ago before cutting him loose last weekend.

During his four-year college career, Leidner threw for 7,287 yards while completing 56.4 percent of his passes to go along with 36 touchdowns and 32 interceptions over the course of four years and 47 games.
