The team announced today that it has waived cornerback David Irons. Irons was a sixth round pick in 2007. Irons is the fifth player lost from the eleven-member ’07 draft class. The Falcons traded Laurent Robinson earlier this off-season, as well as dumping Daren Stone, Doug Datish, and Martrez Milner in 2008.
In two seasons with the Falcons, Irons appeared in 20 games and played very little defense, not registering a single tackle. But he did have 17 stops on special teams in that span, as well as a fumble recovery.
