Falcons release backup QB candidates Grossman, Yates

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have released quarterbacks Rex Grossman and T.J. Yates, leaving Sean Renfree as the backup to starter Matt Ryan.

The 35-year-old Grossman was signed last week and was unimpressive, completing 4 of 9 passes for 41 yards, in Thursday night's preseason win over Baltimore. Grossman played for the Chicago Bears for six years and also spent time with the Texans and Redskins.

Yates was Ryan's top backup in 2014.
