Falcons FB Lousaka Polite Cut, Mike Cox Re-Signed
The Falcons have released Lousaka Polite and have re-signed Mike Cox, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Michael Turner has rushed 128 times for 517 yards and is on pace for another 1,000-yard season, but the offense is averaging 376.5 yards passing, which is eight in the league and the Falcons are hoping to provide some balance with some better lead blocking.
The Falcons drafted Bradie Ewing with the hopes that he’d win the fullback job, but he is out for the season after suffering a knee injury in the exhibition season opener against Baltimore.
Ewing, a former walk-on at Wisconsin, was a fifth-round (157th overall) pick, Cox was beat out in training camp by Polite and released.
Ewing was expected to compete with Mike Cox for the starting fullback position, his acquisition led the Falcons to release Pro Bowler Ovie Mughelli.
