The Atlanta Falcons released a handful of players on Tuesday morning, including running back Qadree Ollison, according to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson.
Ollison, 25, was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL draft out of Pittsburgh. Appearing in 19 career games, Ollison has rushed for 158 yards and five touchdowns for the Falcons since 2019.

Ollison was re-signed to a one-year deal over the offseason but running back is among the team’s most crowded positions. Caleb Huntley was also released this morning, along with OL Justin Shaffer, WR Stanley Berryhill and WR Frank Darby.
The Falcons must trim their roster down to 53 players by today’s 4 p.m. ET deadline.
