Falcons sign veteran guard Zane Beadles 

Atlanta cuts defensive tackle Michael Bennett 

With both starters on injured reserve, the Falcons signed veteran guard Zane Beadles on Tuesday.

The Falcons released defensive tackle Michael Bennett to make room for Beadles, who played in all 16 games for the 49ers last season and made five starts. 

Beadles, 31, was a second-round pick out of Utah by the Broncos in the 2010 NFL draft. He’s 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds. He’s played in 128 games, including 115 starts.

Beadles played for the Broncos (2010-13), Jaguars (2014-15) and 49ers (2016-17). He made the Pro Bowl in 2012.

Bennett was signed after Grady Jarrett suffered an ankle sprain. He saw limited action the past two games.
