THE BRANCH — The Falcons contacted safety Brian Williams about 3
p.m. on Sunday.
It was less than 24 hours after the team had to submit its list of final cuts for the 53-man roster.
Safety Jamaal Fudge, who had a good training camp, was the odd man out.
“Right now, I’m just here to embrace whatever role is here for me,” Williams said. “I want to help this team win games and do whatever I can to contribute.”
It’s not clear how Williams, or recently acquired Tye Hill are going to solve the Falcons’ cornerback issues.
“Brian Williams is guy who played all three positions for us in Jacksonville,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “He played corner, he’s played nickel and he’s played safety. Last season he started six games at safety and 10 games at corner.”
