Atlanta Falcons set practice squad

The Falcons just announced their eight-man practice squad and you’re going to recognize a lot of the names if you followed Atlanta through training camp and the preseason.

The list includes tight end Robbie Agnone, receiver Tim Buckley, running back Dimitri Nance, receiver Andy Strickland, offensive tackle Jose Valdez, safety Rafael Bush, defensive end Emmanuel Stephens and linebacker Bear Woods.

Buckley, Nance, Bush, Stephens and Wood all were signed as rookie free agents and were cut near the end of the preseason. Strickland spent part of last season on the practice squad and Agnone was signed by Atlanta just before camp started.
