Breaking news:

Falcons waive QB Davis

The SportsXchange

The Atlanta Falcons waived quarterback Dominique Davis on Thursday following the trade for former Houston Texans quarterback T.J. Yates.

Davis (6-foot-3, 210 pounds) was signed by the Falcons as a college free agent out of East Carolina following the 2012 NFL Draft.

Davis attempted just seven passes last season as Matt Ryan's top backup.

The Falcons completed a trade with Houston on Wednesday night that sent linebacker Akeem Dent to the Texans and brought Yates to Atlanta, where he went to high school.

The Falcons now have four quarterbacks on the roster heading into camp: Ryan, Yates, Sean Renfree and Jeff Mathews.
