The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have waived tight end Aron White.
White, 6-4, 239 pounds, was signed by the Falcons as a college free agent on May 5, 2012 after he was brought in to Atlanta’s rookie minicamp as a tryout player. He caught nine passes for 101 yards and four touchdowns during his final season at the University of Georgia in 2011.
As part of the NFL’s mandatory roster cut down the Falcons will have to reduce their roster to 75 players by 4:00 p.m. ET on Monday, August 27. Atlanta will have to trim its roster to 53 players by August 31 and may establish an eight-player practice squad beginning on September 1.
