Atlanta Falcon’s roster fine tuning continues

Atlanta Falcons is presently in the action of fine-tuning its roster last April 29-30, which includes welcoming some veterans to the Falcons family.
Supposedly, wide receiver Troy Bergeron re-signed with the Atlanta Falcons last April 28, 2009, just to be released by the Falcons the next day because of some problems with his physical.
That day, April 29, Verron Ulric Haynes, who formerly played running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was drafted by the Falcons and signed with the team the said day.
The next day, April 30, linebacker Edmond Miles also signed with the Falcons as addition to their roster.

Haynes was selected by the Steelers on the fifth round of the 2002 NFL Draft, and had spent his five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2002-2006. During his stay, Haynes has a record of 660 yards on 159 carries (4.2 average per carry) and 3 touchdowns. He also performed 39 receptions for 322 yards (8.3 average per reception) and 2 touchdowns, one of those is from wide receiver Antwaan Randle El. Although on the 2006 season, Verron missed most the games because of his knee injury.
To provide more space for their salary cap, however, Haynes was released by the Steelers on March 1, 2007. But eventually, he re-signed with the team on June 4, and was released again on September 1, 2007. And when Willie Parker, Steelers’ starting running back, was placed on an injured reserve, Haynes, once again re-signed with the Steelers on December 4. Until finally, he signed with the Falcons last April 29, 2009.

On the other hand, Edmond Miles, started his rookie career with the Miami Dolphins as he signed with them on May 4, 2007 as a college free agent. Later, he was released by the Dolphins, and afterwards signed with the New York Giants on December 17, 2008 as a free agent. Miles during his stay with the Dolphins on the 2007 season, was named to be the first rookie to led Miami Dolphins in special team tackles, since Sean Hill in 1994 , where he led with a total of 16 special team stops, and also performed two solo tackles. Miles had been in action and competed in all 16 games for the Miami’s for that season.
Edmond had also played in the field and had shown action in two games for the 2008 NFL season under the Giants. From AFC East to NFC East, Haynes is now with NFC South’s Atlanta Falcons, which happened last April 29.
