Reavis was waived by the Falcons on Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Anticipating the arrival of blocking tight end Luke Stocker, Atlanta decided to part ways with one of its developmental prospects in Reavis. The former Virginia Tech Hokie had been a member of the Falcons' practice squad since last November, but he became expendable with 10 other cornerbacks currently vying for attention in training camp.
Reaves was waived by the Jaguars on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The move is somewhat surprising, as Reavis looked good throughout the preseason and the Jaguars don't have much depth at safety. The 23-year-old was promoted from the practice squad late last season and had one tackle in four games, mostly playing on special teams.
Reavis had eight tackles (six solo) in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens. Reavis tied for the team lead with 50 defensive snaps and made an impact while on the field, as coach Doug Marrone included him on a list of players that "helped themselves" with their performance, per Ashlyn Sullivan of the Jaguars' official site. The 23-year-old spent most of last season on the practice squad before being promoted in late November and is poised to serve in a reserve role at safety, though the inexperience of starters Ronnie Harrison and Jarrod Wilson could lead to more opportunities.
