The Falcons did not tender restricted free agent receiver Drew Davis, making him an unrestricted free agent, reports ESPN.com. Davis did not make a catch last season as he recovered from foot surgery.
The Falcons are all but perfectly healthy for their Sunday game against visiting Cleveland. Cornerback Robert Alford (wrist) and offensive tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring) are out, but the other eight players on their injury report are probable. That group includes guard Jon Asamoah (shoulder), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), wide receivers Drew Davis (foot), Harry Douglas (foot), Julio Jones (illness) and Devin Hester (wrist) and running backs Steven Jackson (illness) and Patrick DiMarco (illness).
The Falcons have activated Drew Davis from the PUP list and cut fellow wide receiver Freddie Martino . Martino has been active for four games this season, but had yet to record a reception.
Falcons wideout Drew Davis, who underwent foot surgery in July, practiced for the first time Wednesday, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The team has 21 days to put Davis on the active roster.

Once he starts practicing, the Atlanta will have 21 days to remove the wideout from the PUP list to the active roster.
