FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons have waived 11 players after losing their third straight preseason game.
The Falcons announced Sunday they have cut tight end Tim Biere, fullback Devonte Campbell, linebacker Nick Clancy, tight end Colin Cloherty, quarterback Seth Doege, defensive end Cam Henderson, offensive tackle Jeff Nady, running back Donald Russell, safety Troy Sanders, center Matt Smith and defensive end Brandon Thurmond.
All were undrafted players, and Cloherty was the only one with NFL experience.
The tougher cuts are still to come. The Falcons must get to 75 players by Tuesday afternoon, then trim their roster for 53 players by Saturday for the start of the regular season.
