Falcons make roster moves

On a day when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are dominating the news with the release of Derrick Ward and the NFL announcing a one-game suspension for Aqib Talib, the Atlanta Falcons just very quietly announced a couple of roster moves.

To get down to the 75-player limit, the Falcons reached an injury settlement with safety Matt Giordano and terminated his contract. They also released defensive tackle Thomas Johnson.
