Falcons make last-minute moves

The Falcons made a couple of roster moves just before heading out for their first practice Saturday morning.

They announced the signing of linebacker Jamie Winborn and released linebacker Rashad Bobino. Winborn has been a part-time starter throughout his previous eight seasons in the NFL, but it's likely the Falcons are viewing him as a dependable backup and special-teams player.

They've got Curtis Lofton, Mike Peterson and Stephen Nicholas ticketed as their starters at the moment. Winborn and Coy Wire can provide some experience behind the starters.

Winborn is also a top special-teams player. He led the Broncos with 11 special-teams tackles in 2007.
