Atlanta Falcons sign Beadles to fortify O-line
The Falcons' offensive line has been hit hard by season-ending injuries to starting guards Andy Levitre and Brandon Fusco. Beadles, 31, was released by the San Francisco 49ers in May but is a ninth-year veteran who has started 115 of 128 career games.
Beadles began his career in Denver and spent four years with the Broncos before joining the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014. He signed with the 49ers two years later, but started only five of 16 games in 2017 and was released in a salary cap-saving move over the spring.
Bennett, 25, has appeared in two games this season, recording five tackles, including one for loss. The former Ohio State star played in 13 games for the Jaguars in 2015, recording 10 tackles, but appeared in only one more over the past two years.
