Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Panthers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

We should see Devonta Freeman as the top back with Ito Smith as his primary backup. Barner will work on special teams and compete with Brian Hill and Jeremy Langford for a spot on the depth chart behind Freeman and Smith.

Atlanta Falcons CB Robert Alford is being released Tuesday, Feb. 5, according to a source. He was set to earn $8.5 million in 2019.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick for the Falcons in the 2013 NFL draft, Alford's play isn't what it used to be. The move clears up $7.9 million in cap space for the Falcons. Even though 2018 was the first season Alford didn't have an interceptoin (and he's not getting any younger), the veteran corner should be able to find work as a starter for another team in 2019.
