Falcons release Brandon Fusco after bolstering guard spot

By The Associated Press

FLOWERY BRANCH — The Atlanta Falcons have released guard Brandon Fusco after bolstering the position in free agency and last week's NFL draft.

Fusco started the first seven games at right guard last season before suffering a season-ending right ankle injury against the New York Giants on Oct. 22.

The Falcons signed free-agent guards James Carpenter and Jamon Brown before making guard Chris Lindstrom the team's first pick of the NFL draft. Lindstrom is expected to compete for the starting job at right guard.

The Falcons continued to focus on their offensive line when they drafted tackle Kaleb McGary of Washington late in the first round.

The 30-year-old Fusco has started in 87 of 90 games with Minnesota, San Francisco and Atlanta.
