Falcons finalize practice squad with 3 more

The Falcons announced today that they added three more players to their eight-man practice squad to complete the unit. The team announced they had signed tight end Chase Coffman, linebacker Pat Schiller, and safety Mark LeGree after signing five players yesterday.

Coffman and Schiller both were with the Falcons this summer. Coffman was a mid-August signing that was cut in early August by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coffman is a third-year player, but his only on-field experience was six games with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. Schiller was an undrafted free agent this year with the Falcons out of Northern Illinois. LeGree was a fifth round pick in 2011 by the Seattle Seahawks last year but was cut prior to the start of the season. He played on three different teams’ practice squds during the course of the 2011 season: Arizona, San Francisco, and the New York Jets. He was re-signed by the 49ers after the season, but was cut by them in mid-August. He was picked up by the Chicago Bears and finished camp with them before being cut this past weekend. LeGree hails from Appalachian State where he tallied 22 interceptions in three seasons as a starter.
