Falcons sign QB, DB

The Falcons just announced they have signed two players who were in for tryouts during their weekend minicamp.

Quarterback Eric Ward and defensive back Daylan Walker received contracts. I think the Ward signing is particularly intriguing. He looked pretty good throwing the ball out there and I think he’ll have a chance to compete with John Parker Wilson and D.J. Shockley for the No. 3 job or at least be a candidate for the practice squad.

Ward played at Richmond and is an Atlanta native and had a prolific college career, throwing for 8,969 yards and 61 touchdowns, while also running for 1,406 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Walker played at Arkansas State and had 152 career tackles with three interceptions.
