Falcons Release Polite, Re-sign Cox

The Atlanta Falcons have released fullback Lousaka Polite and re-signed Mike Cox to be the new fullback.

Polite was signed after Bradie Ewing tore his ACL in the preseason. Ewing was drafted in the fifth round (157th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Wisconsin, and he was expected to compete for the starting role.

Cox was released during the final round of cuts in the preseason. He signed with the team in October of last season after former fullback Ovie Mughelli went down with a knee injury.
