The Atlanta Falcons brought in five free agents for tryouts on Sunday including QB Jake Rudock, per Albert Breer

The full list of workouts for Atlanta includes:

  1. WR Greg Dortch
  2. QB Kyle Lauletta
  3. QB Jake Rudock
  4. WR Caleb Scott
  5. QB Kyle Sloter

Rudock, 26, is a former sixth-round pick by the Lions of the 2016 NFL Draft. Detroit elected to waive him as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit at the start of the 2016 season and they signed him to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

Rudock managed to make the 53-man roster in 2017 and returned to the Lions on an exclusive rights free agent the following year. He spent the 2018 season the Lions practice squad before joining the Dolphins on a futures contract last January. 

Miami added Rudock to the taxi squad at the start of the regular season. The Dolphins brought him back on a futures contract this past January before waiving him last month. 

In 2017, Rudock appeared in three games for the Lions and completed three of five pass attempts for 24 yards and an interception.

Lauletta, 25, was selected in the fourth round by the Giants out of Richmond in 2018. He signed a four-year, $3,167,700 with the Giants but was waived coming out of the preseason his second year.

The Eagles signed Lauletta to the practice squad and re-signed him to a futures deal for the 2020 season. Unfortunately, Philadelphia waived him a few weeks ago. 

In 2018, Lauletta appeared in two games for the Giants and completed 0-5 pass attempts with an interception.

Sloter, 26, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Colorado back in 2017. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Broncos cut him loose.

Sloter later signed on with the Vikings’ practice squad and eventually joined the Cardinals before the Lions signed him to their active roster last year. He was cut loose this past March. 

During his college career at Southern Mississippi and Northern Colorado, Sloter appeared in 34 games and completed 198 passes on 320 attempts (61.9 percent) for 2,656 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
