  • Falcons' Cornell Armstrong: Signs new deal with Atlanta

    The Falcons signed Armstrong from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of Sunday's game versus Carolina, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Armstrong made his 2022 debut in Week 7 at Cincinnati, and Atlanta saw fit to promote him to the 53-man roster for good ahead of Week 8. The 27-year-old corner played in 86 percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps in Week 7, and with 2020 first-rounder A.J. Terrell (hamstring) out, Armstrong could be in line for another busy game Sunday.

The fifth-year cornerback did not play in 2021 after he was similarly waived with an injury settlement from Houston's IR last September, and he has played only 136 defensive snaps during his career.
