After making the cut to get down to 80 players on Tuesday, the Falcons released their official depth chart for the game against the Cleveland Browns set for 8 p.m. Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Newly signed quarterback Josh Rosen was slotted along with Feleipe Franks as the No. 2 quarterback. He’s coming from San Francisco which runs a similar offense. If he can get the wording together, they’ll have a package ready for the game.

While Kaleb McGary continues to come back from an apparent left knee inury and possible surgery, Willie Beavers is still listed as the No. 1 right tackle.

On the team’s depth chart, there is no backup listed for Chris Lindstrom at right guard. Sam Jones started the Dolphins’ game at right guard so we penciled him in behind Lindstrom.

The Falcons cut running back Javian Hawkins, linebacker Shareef Miller, offensive lineman Willie Wright, wide receiver Austin Trammell, and nose tackle Olive Sagapolu to get down to 80 players.

Hawkins, who played at Louisville, rushed five times for 46 yards in the 37-17 loss to Miami on Saturday. He was the only mild surprise.

(NOTE: The depth is considered official because the team released it. The team however considers their own depth chart to be unofficial.)
