The Atlanta Falcons play host to the Cleveland Browns in an NFL preseason finale on Sunday night that "isn't important'' ... unless your name is on the backend of the latest Falcons depth chart.
As our friends at Falcoholic point out, maybe the most notable change this week is how the two backups to QB Matt Ryan are "tied'' on the depth chart, as rookie Feleipe Franks is listed first, but with an "or'' between him and just-signed street free agent Josh Rosen.

RB: Mike Davis, Cordarrelle Patterson, Keith Smith, Qadree Ollison, D’Onta Foreman, Caleb Huntley
WR: Calvin Ridley, Christian Blake, Chris Rowland, Juwan Green, Antonio Nunn
