McCarthy cut by Falcons

Former Yale captain Tom McCarthy was one of 17 players cut by the Atlanta Falcons on Friday.

McCarthy, a defensive end, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Falcons. McCarthy had solo tackles in preseason games against Miami and Jacksonville but with the Falcons signing Ray Edwards as a free agent and the strong play of seventh-round pick Cliff Matthews, McCarthy was caught up in a numbers' crunch. The Falcons could bring McCarthy back on the practice squad.

Also cut by the Falcons on Friday was former Masuk High star Paul Fenaroli, a rookie center out of Stony Brook.

I'm still waiting to hear about former Yale fullback Shane Bannon and tight end Nate Lawrie, who are on the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers rosters respectively.
