Falcons Pro Bowl center Alex Mack may have played his last game in Atlanta after landing on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

Mack is more than likely out for the team’s season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, which is technically the final game of the five-year contract he signed with the Falcons in 2016.

Mack has been quietly consistent for much of his five seasons in Atlanta, and his signing remains of the best moves made by former GM Thomas Dimitroff.

As much as the Falcons would love to have him back, though, it’s unlikely they can afford him unless he takes a team-friendly contract just to stay.

If this is indeed Mack’s last game in Atlanta, fans will remember his time here fondly as his presence in the middle of the offensive line helped the team reach the Super Bowl in 2016.

Here’s a mic’d up segment Mack was featured in earlier this season.
