FLOWERY BRANCH — Wide receiver Tim Toone and tight end Chase Coffman were signed to the Falcons’ active roster on Tuesday.
The team played tight end Tommy Gallarda, who suffered a shoulder injury against the Saints, on injured reserve, and signed tight end Andrew Szczerba to the practice squad.
Toone was signed by the Falcons as an unrestricted free agent on July 25. He was waived-injured by Atlanta on September 6, 2012. Toone caught three passes for 55 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown during the exhibition season.
Coffman, 6-6, 250 pounds, was originally selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round (98th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft. He was signed by the Falcons as a free agent on August 11, and served as a member of the team’s practice squad prior to being signed to the active roster.
Gallarda played in all nine games as a reserve tight end and recorded one reception for seven yards.
Szczerba, 6-6, 256 pounds, was originally signed by the Dallas Cowboys as a college free agent following the 2012 NFL Draft.
