KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Wide receiver Drew Davis was added to the Falcons’ 53-man active roster on Saturday.
Offensive Guard Phillipkeith Manley, an undrafted rookie free agent from Toledo, was waived. Davis’ promotion creates an empty slot on the eight-man practice squad. If Manley clears waivers, he’ll likely be added to the practice squad.
Davis, 6-1, 205 pounds was signed by the Falcons as a college free agent on July 26, 2011. He spent the 2011 season as a member of the Falcons practice squad. He caught 42 passes for 470 yards with three touchdowns in 2010 and helped lead Oregon to the BCS national championship game.
Davis gives the Falcons five receivers for the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Manley, 6-5, 309 pounds, was signed by the Falcons as a college free agent on April 30, 2012.
