Falcons cut 3 more to get to 75-player limit

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have completed their latest round of cuts by waiving receivers Rashad Evans, Marcus Jackson and Marcus Sales.

The cuts announced Monday came after the team waived 11 players the previous day.

The roster now stands at 75 heading into Thursday's final preseason game against Jacksonville.

Evans and Sales were signed by the Falcons this year as college free agents. Jackson was an undrafted player who spent the 2012 season on Atlanta's practice squad.

The Falcons must reduce their roster to the regular-season limit of 53 by Saturday.
