The Falcons announced today that they have signed guard Harland Gunn off the New Orleans Saints practice squad to their roster. He will be replacing Joe Hawley, who is currently serving a four-game suspension. Gunn adds depth at guard, and potentially could get looks as a reserve center. During his summer with the Dallas Cowboys, he worked some at center due to injuries sustained along the Cowboys line. Gunn was cut by the Cowboys at the end of training camp, and has been on the Saints practice squad since.
Gunn originally joined the Cowboys this past spring as an undrafted free agent out of Miami. There, he played alongside former Falcon undrafted free agent signee center Tyler Horn. Over his final two seasons at Miami, Gunn started 25 games beside Horn at left guard. He also started 5 games during his sophomore season at right guard.
