Falcons release OG Brandon Fusco

This transaction saves the team $3,293,750 against the cap. Fusco joined the Falcons on a three-year, $12.75 million contract last year and started the team's first seven regular season games before suffering a season-ending ankle injury against the Giants in Week 7. Atlanta was more than capable of moving on after inking James Carpenter, Jamon Brown and Adam Gettis in free agency, not to mention using the No. 14 overall pick on OG Chris Lindstrom. Fusco will likely battle for a reserve role in camp elsewhere.

Just one year into a 3-year deal, Fusco started in all seven games prior to going down to injury in 2017. The Falcons added a lot of OGs in free agency and the draft.

Should get a job pretty quickly if he’s healthy

I wouldn't mind if the Panthers took a look at him.

Best case scenario is Little would be ready to start Day 1 (one of Williams, Moton, or Little would play LG, although probably Moton) and Fusco would be able to provide quality depth.  Worst case scenario is Little isn't ready Day 1 and our back-up plan is an experienced starter.

Don't the Texans need 5 new offensive linemen?

League News: The Atlanta Falcons released OG Brandon Fusco with a failed physical designation.

Looks like he didn't pass his physical and is having some problems.  I like the guy and he was a solid piece to the line but for 4 million in cap and us having all this depth now you can't keep him around if he isn't healthy or ready.  He will for sure pick up somewhere once he can get back healthy though.

Just two, maybe. Got new Ts, our C and RG were decent - and if Martinas Rankin can push Senio Kelemete to the bench, LG is handled. 

Still wouldn't mind looking at him...

He was really, really bad when he played last year. failed physical designation doesn't mean much tbh.
