The Atlanta Falcons officially reported to training camp on Tuesday, but they also made headlines for several surprise roster moves.
Calais Campbell landed on the non-football injury list while Caleb Huntley got waived with a failed physical designation.
The 24-year-old Huntley just reached the seven-month mark of his recovery from a torn Achilles that was suffered in Week 15.
Signed as an undrafted rookie out of Ball State, Huntley racked up 366 rushing yards and a touchdown on 76 carries last season. The bulk of his work came in October during a five-game window.
Atlanta’s running game ranked as the third-best unit in the league last season at just under 160 yards per game.
Huntley was unlikely to get much of a chance to run in 203 after the Falcons selected Bijan Robinson with the No. 8 pick. The former college standout registered 20 touchdowns during his final year at Texas.
Huntley’s lack of availability entering camp ultimately ended up being his downfall.
The Atlanta Falcons finished the 2022 season with a 7-10 record. With the retirement of Tom Brady, the NFC South is wide open for anybody to take it.
