Chris Redman QB ATL Jun 08 '78
Falcons released QB Chris Redman.
Redman's highest passer rating this season was 71.1; it's quite possible that he's finished as an effective backup. The Falcons have signed journeyman Luke McCown, who has experience in Dirk Koetter's system, but this move says more about the progress of impressive undrafted rookie Dominique Davis.

Falcons agreed to terms with QB Chris Redman on an undisclosed contract.
Matt Ryan's backup each of the past four years, Redman has attempted just 34 passes since the end of the 2009 season. Four months shy of his 35th birthday with only 500 career attempts to his name, Redman is one of the league's poorer back-up options.
