Falcons release Clabo

The Atlanta Falcons have released offensive tackle Tyson Clabo.

The move is designated as a post-June 1 release.

"Unfortunately, we had to make another difficult decision regarding our roster today," said Falcons coach Mike Smith about Clabo. "Tyson was a valuable contributor to our football team during his time here and we appreciate everything he did for this team and in the community."

Clabo joined the Falcons in 2005 and was a member of the practice squad before being signed to the active roster in 2006. He started each of the 101 games he played for the club, including all 16 games each of the past five years.

The 31-year-old Wake Forest product originally signed with Denver in 2004 and did not play a game for the Broncos.
