Falcons Worked Out Nine Players

According to Howard Balzer, the Falcons brought in nine players for tryouts on Tuesday.

  1. P Matt Wile
  2. OT Nate Wozniak
  3. P Sam Irwin-Hill
  4. LB Robert McCray
  5. CB Quenton Meeks
  6. CB D.J. White
  7. LS Nick Moore
  8. DE Carroll Phillips
  9. K Kaare Vedvik

Of this group, Atlanta signed Wile and Wozniak to their practice squad. 

Phillips, 26, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois back in 2017. He spent over a year in Jacksonville before he was waived in 2018.

The Colts later signed Phillips to their practice squad before promoting him to their active roster a few weeks later.

Indianapolis placed Phillips on the Physically Unable to Perform list back in July and activated him a shortly afterward. However, he was among the Colts’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. 

In 2018, Phillips appeared in six games for the Colts and recorded five tackles and no sacks.

Vedvik, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall back in May of 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season.

The Ravens traded Vedvik to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick a few weeks ago, but he was cut loose after only a few weeks. New York claimed Vedvik off of waivers but cut him loose last week. 

Vedvik missed a field goal and an extra point during Week 2’s 17-16 loss to the Bills, so his release didn’t come as a big surprise. 

During his college career at Marshall, Vedvik converted 10 of 16 field goal attempts (62.5 percent) to go along with 41 of 42 extra point tries (97.6 percent) over the course of 26 games.
