FLOWERY BRANCH – Five former Falcons – tight end Ben Hartsock, tackle Tyson Clabo, linebacker Stephen Nicholas, and cornerbacks Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson – are on the ProfootballTalk.com’s All-Unemployed team over available veteran player.
Hartsock started 11 games for the Falcons in 2008. He’s started 48 games over 10 seasons as a blocking tight end from The Ohio State University.
Clabo has 116 starts and could be picked up by a team in need of help late in training camp like the Falcons, who suffered a rash of injuries and signed Jeremy Trueblood last season.
Nicholas made 50 starts for the Falcons.
Samuel has 51 career interceptions, but appeared to have lost some of his acceleration last season.
Robinson lost his nickel back job in Kansas City last season, his 10th in the league.
