    The Atlanta Falcons have released wide receiver Michael Jenkins and former first-round pick Jamaal Anderson.

    Anderson, 25, a four-year veteran, started all 16 games as a rookie defensive end in 2007 and 31 games since. He has 83 total tackles in his career with 4.5 sacks. He started only three games last season.

    About time they release Jamal Anderson, he has not played since 2001!

    I kid, I kid. When I read that though I forgot about Jamaal Anderson the DE for Atlanta versus Jamal Anderson the former RB for Atlanta.

    Anderson is a similar player to Spears.

    Never really watched jenkins. Would he be a serviceable third wide out?

    He's not really a slot receiver, he'll get the money to be a #2 somewhere. He's pretty respectable.

    Yeah, I liked him out or Arkansas. He played out of position as a 4-3 DE for most of his career until they moved him inside. I think he'd be suited for a 3-4 DE and I wouldn't mind bringing him in for really cheap.

    Don't know about that, I think he'll take a #3 job on a good team if he can get it.

    Who says he would have to line up in the slot? In 3 WR sets you could have Dez,Jenkins and Miles in the slot.

    We have a third wideout in Ogletree? Let's stop with the free agent third wideout! We need to address our secondary or dl in F/a not wideout!

    ? is right. Do we? He has yet to show that is he. Just claiming it does not make it so.

    I live in ATL and Jenkins was a serviceable number 2. If we could bring him as a number 3 then we would be stacked. He has some drop issues, but other than that he is pretty solid :).

    Austin Dez Jenks Witten Jones

    That would be a killer 5 wide set :)

    Jenkins is a solid WR. Someone will get a good #2 with that guy.
