FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Atlanta Falcons announced Monday that they have released veteran offensive guard Brandon Fusco.
Fusco, 30, started each of the seven games he was healthy for the Falcons in 2018 after signing teams as a free agent before the season. Fusco suffered a seasonally ending ankle injury in Falcons' victory against the New York Giants in week 7.
This offseason, Falcons signed three offensive guards in the free agency bringing in James Carpenter, Jamon Brown and Adam Gettis. Atlanta also used its first election in 2019 NFL Draft – No. 14 overall – to choose former Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom.
