As expected, the Atlanta Falcons announced the signing of wide receiver Freddie Martino and tight end Kyle Miller to their practice squad today. The Falcons added eight players to the practice squad yesterday with the expectation that they would add the last two players today.

Martino was an undrafted free agent out of North Greenville with the Falcons this summer. He had a quiet preseason, but finished strong with a single touchdown catch for 66 yards in the preseason finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Miller was originally an undrafted free agent out of Mount Union in 2011 with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He spent the past two years with the Miami Dolphins. He began to the 2012 season with the Indianapolis Colts on their practice squad but was elevated to the active roster for a single game. He was released by the Colts the following week and finished the year with the Miami Dolphins, where he was inactive for the final five games. He spent 2013 on the Dolphins practice squad before being released by the team this past summer in the final cutdowns. At Mount Union, Miller was utilized both as a tight end and long snapper. His senior year, he caught 62 passes for 872 yards and seven touchdowns.
