The Falcons cut 2007 sixth round pick center Doug Datish on Monday afternoon. Datish is the first of any of the 2007 draft class to be released from the team. Datish missed all of last season due to a wrist injury he suffered early in training camp.
He was a three-year starter at Ohio State, manning three different positions: left guard, left tackle, and center. He was the starting center for the Buckeye team that lost to the Florida Gators in the National Championship Game in January 2007.
