Falcons Reportedly Set to Release Cornerback Robert Alford

The Falcons appear to be in the thinking of re-tooling their defense in 2019, and it will start with a bit of a surprise, as the team is going to release cornerback Robert Alford.

Alford started 88 games and had 10 interceptions after being a second-round draft choice back in 2013. The team will get hit with a $1.2 million cap hit upon his release, and he was to make $8.5 million in 2019.

He is most famous for picking off Tom Brady of the Pats and returning the interception for a score during the first half of Super Bowl LI two years ago.

Jalen Collins will likely get a bigger shot in the secondary as the team has been trying more to work in the former second round pick.
