Atlanta released two players today to get the total players to 84, one below the 85 maximum deadline of Tuesday, August 17th.

According to the official Falcons Twitter account, Atlanta released linebacker George Obinna and and offensive lineman Bryce Hargrove.

Hargrove signed by the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh this year. Listed at 6'4 and 320 pounds, Hargrove was competing for a roster spot at guard and was listed third team at right guard behind Chris Lindstrom and Willie Wright.

Next week is also a cut week for NFL teams as they are required to have a maximum of 80 players on the roster by Tuesday, August 24th.

Atlanta will conduct joint practices with the Miami Dolphins this week as they prepare to take on the Dolphins in their second preseason game on Saturday night.
