The Atlanta Falcons made some major change in their player's formation and recently announced the release of tackle Kendall Calhoun this Saturday, replacing Calhoun's release with penning defensive back Ryan Neal.


Neal, 23, who was in contract with Philadelphia Eagles after his free release from Southern Illinois. So, as soon as he was released by Eagles, 6-foot-3, the 200-pound defensive back was drafted by Falcons.  Neal has played in total 45 games during his four-year career at Southern Illinois and has a record of 226 tackles, 24 pass defenses along with five interceptions.

Signed by the Falcons on July 30 after he was released by Houston Texans earlier in the offseason Calhoun is once again up in the market after 17-0 road loss to the New York Jets on 11th August last night. The player with 72 tackle record with the Falcons surely is on his prime and will be eyed by many. 

Atlanta in its upcoming preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is willing to use their recent recruit Ryan Neal. The game kicks off at a 7 p.m. ET.
