The Falcons announced today that they have re-signed cornerback Dominique Franks and waived-injured wideout Tim Toone. Franks was among the team’s more surprising cuts during last weekend’s cutdown to 53 players. Franks and Toone had split reps during the preseason on punt returns. With the waived-injured designation, Toone will be placed on the Falcons’ injured reserve upon clearing waivers. Since being cut by the Falcons, Franks has gotten looks from the Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs (per Adam Caplan) and Miami Dolphins (per Aaron Wilson). Last season, Franks started four games as an injury replacement for Brent Grimes. He finished the season with 15 tackles and a pair of interceptions. During this past preseason, Franks returned a total of 6 punts for 70 yards (11.7 avg), including a 45-yard return in the preseason opener against the Ravens. Toone had 6 punt returns for 48 yards (8.0 avg).   Be sure to check out other great articles at FalcFans.com.
