NFC South: Matt Murphy

Pre-game roster notes

September, 1, 2011
A couple of quick roster notes before we watch each NFC South team play its final preseason game.

The Falcons announced Thursday that they’ve waived quarterback Adam Froman and offensive linemen Matt Murphy. Both were signed as undrafted free agents this summer.

A little bit bigger news out of New Orleans. The Saints have placed cornerback Fabian Washington on the injured-reserve list. Washington, who has been a starter at several spots around the league, was signed to give the Saints some depth in the secondary. But Washington suffered a hamstring injury that forced him to miss most training camp and the preseason.

I’ll be back with brief observations after the games.
The Atlanta Falcons just sent out the list of the 22 undrafted free agents they have agreed to terms with. Here it is.
