The Atlanta Womens att Bosher Jersey Falcons have made their wave of roster cuts and now have 52 players remaining on the roster, with the team announcing the cuts in one fell swoop this morning. There are very few surprise cuts here, with Sean Harlow probably topping the list, though we knew the former fourth round pick would be gone yesterday. The Falcons did surprise me by keeping Richard “Dewey” Jarivs, Matt Gono and Justin Zimmer on the active roster, meaning three UDFAs made this very talented team. That’s pretty cool.Zimmer’s pass rushing upside apparently earned him the nod over Garrison Smith, who had a strong preseason as well. Gono is a high-upside tackle who could step into the swing tackle role a year from now. Jarvis was a player the Falcons seemed to like quite a bit http://www.falconsfootballauthentics.com/devonta-freeman-jersey-authentic , based on his playing time this preseason, but he might be the biggest surprise of all, especially because he beat out Jonathan Celestin. Otherwise, the roster shook out the way most of us thought it would throughout the summer. The Falcons kept six cornerbacks and six wide receivers, and they aren’t surprising choices. Now the Falcons will have to fill one roster spot and will get to face the Eagles on Thursday night. The team will assemble their practice squad beginning tomorrow at noon, as well.Here are the cuts.

He’ll be playing the 100th game of his career Womens Desmond Trufant Jersey , and as you’d expect for a player of Julio’s caliber, that big round number comes with some history attached to it. Julio already has more yards through 99 games—to say nothing of 100—in NFL history, so he’s just going to add to his total on Sunday against the Steelers. With eight receptions, though, he’ll tie Antonio Brown for the most through 100 games, and if he manages to reel in nine he’ll simply be the most prolific wide receiver ever between the 20s in that span. Either way, Julio’s already made some history. Despite all this, Jones will inevitably face extra scrutiny for the rest of his career for his scoring numbers. He simply doesn’t reel in touchdowns the way many other elite receivers do and have in the past Youth Logan Paulsen Jersey , due to the last 20 regular season games where he has but three scores and a track record of fine but not stellar production before that. You only need to watch Julio for a handful of plays to understand how special he is, but that touchdown thing is going to be a constant focus for many fans and analysts until he starts scoring in bunches.Yet you can see Julio’s importance in the way defenses are forced to tailor their gameplans around stopping him, and in the myriad ways they’ve failed to do so as Julio has piled up 9,556 yards since he arrived in the league back in 2011. You can also see it in Calvin Ridley’s stellar production, as Ridley continues to get one-on-one matchups he can win as teams pick their poison by continuing to prioritize #11.The Falcons just don’t have this caliber of offense without one of the best receivers I’ve ever seen play the game, and chances are good Julio will do nothing but burnish his reputation against a Pittsburgh secondary that just isn’t ready to hold him in check. May the Falcons win in no small part because of him, because I’m sure nobody wants to see a loss for Julio’s 100th game.
