ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Falcons are releasing TE Jonnu Smith.
Smith was a third-round pick by the Titans in 2017, joining the Falcons after being dealt from the Patriots in 2023. In Atlanta, he reunited with head coach Arthur Smith and finished with 50 receptions for 582 yards and three touchdowns in his sole season as a Falcon. The 28-year-old Jonnu Smith now hits the open market, likely to latch on as a backup tight end somewhere. A reunion with newly minted Steelers offensive coordinator Arthur Smith is possible, but regardless of where Jonnu ends up, he is off the fantasy radar for now.
