The Falcons have waived quarterback John Parker Wilson and placed defensive tackle Corey Peters on reserved/non-football injury list on Sunday.
With how Wilson performed in preseason, it’s not surprising to see the Falcons let him go. However, the loss of Peters through Week 6 is a huge blow to the Falcons defense; he was able to usurp the starting spot from first-round draft pick Peria Jerry after being drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Jerry will need to step up and play like he was drafted in the first round.
With these two roster moves, the Falcons have cut the roster down to the mandatory 75-player limit.
