Falcons begin trimming roster

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

The Falcons just began trimming their roster. Can’t say there are any big surprises here.

Safety Eric Brock, cornerback Glenn Sharpe, tackle Adam Speer, guard Ryan Stanchek, cornerback Tony Tiller, center Ben Wilkerson and receiver Chandler Williams were released.

The Falcons still need to clear 13 roster spots by Saturday afternoon to get down to 53 players.
