FLOWERY BRANCH -- Here's the revised depth chart after the moves on Friday, which included a trade for left guard Andy Levitre.

In addition to quarterbacks T.J. Yates and Rex Grossman, the Falcons waived safety Sean Baker, linebacker Terrell Manning, offensive tackle Jake Rogers, offensive guard Jared Smith, cornerback Kevin White and defensive end Cliff Matthews.

The moves left the team at 67 players. They must cutdown to 53 by 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Unless the Falcons make another move, Sean Renfree, who hasn’t played in the NFL regular-season game, is in line to backup Matt Ryan, who hasn’t missed a game since the 2009 season. His streak of 87 starts in a row is the fifth-longest among active quarterbacks, despite playing under severe duress the past two seasons.

Here’s our projected deep chart:

Do you like the offensive line better with Levitre?

Comfortable with Renfree as the No. 2? (My neighbor and season-ticket holder George Gallman wants them to sign RGIII. I have to break the news to him that the RGIII and Shanahan thing didn’t work out too well in D.C. the first time around.)
