NFC South: Robbie Agnone

Atlanta Falcons make roster moves

February, 17, 2011
The Atlanta Falcons announced a couple of minor transactions Thursday night.

They signed defensive tackle Trey Lewis to a contract extension and signed tight end Robbie Agnone. Lewis came to the Falcons in the 2007 draft and appeared in only one game last season. But the Falcons like Lewis’ ability to play the run and view him as a nice backup to Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters and Peria Jerry.

Agnone spent part of the 2010 season on Atlanta’s practice squad. He previously has been with the Washington Redskins and the New England Patriots.

Atlanta Falcons set practice squad

September, 5, 2010
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.
