Falcons waive Fudge

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

The Falcons just announced they have released safety Jamaal Fudge.

Presumably, the move was made to clear a roster spot for veteran defensive back Brian Williams, who agreed to terms Sunday night. Fudge spent last season with the Falcons and appeared mostly on special teams. He still has practice-squad eligibility, so don't be surprised if he's brought back in that capacity.
