The Atlanta Falcons kicked off their preseason schedule with an underwhelming 23-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans. They faced some tough decisions right after, though, with the first training camp cut date approaching.

The Falcons have made their first round of cuts to get down to 85 players.
Falcons Training Camp Cuts
Atlanta had to waive just two players to get down to Tuesday's 85-man limit: linebacker George Obinna and offensive lineman Bryce Hargrove. Obinna, who went undrafted in 2020, was signed by the Falcons back in June but failed to make much of an impression at training camp. Meanwhile, Hargrove went undrafted at the 2021 NFL Draft and will have to look elsewhere to make his professional football debut.
