Falcons add four to 2007 roster

The Falcons made a few more roster moves this past week, adding four players to their 2007 roster.

The team signed defensive Nic Clemons, cornerback Brent Grimes, and linebackers Ryan Riddle and Travis Williams.

It is quite possible that all four players will wind up being allocated to the recently redubbed NFL Europa this spring.

Both Grimes and Williams were with the Falcons this past summer during training camp. Both were undrafted free agents with the team. Grimes missed all of the preseason with an injury, while Williams appeared in 3 games and recorded 4 tackles.

Clemons spent his collegiate playing days at University of Georgia. He first entered in the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Redskins in 2003. He earned a practice squad position as a rookie. He managed to make the roster in 2005, and appeared in 8 games. He was cut this past summer by the Redskins.

Riddle, a sixth round pick for the Raiders in 2005, appeared in 12 games as a rookie mostly on special teams. He was released by the Raiders this past summer, but picked up by the New York Jets in September. He spent most of the season inactive on the Jets roster, but did play in 5 games, mainly on special teams as well. He played defensive end at California, and has spent much of his short NFL career as an outside linebacker for 3-4 teams. He could project either as an end or outside linebacker for the Falcons.
