    Falcons' Danny Etling: Runs wild in loss to Redskins

    Danny Etling completed just two of six pass attempts for 19 yards, but rushed for a game-high 48 yards on seven carries during Thursday's 19-7 loss to Washington. He also fumbled while absorbing a sack, but the ball was recovered by teammate John Wetzel.Etling sure can move, as exhibited by New England's inclination to give the LSU product an audition at wide receiver before letting him go. Coach Dan Quinn has made it clear that Etling is in Atlanta to serve as a developmental backup should he prove capable of making the active roster or practice squad -- a realistic possibility because he provides the defense with an opportunity to practice against an elusive quarterback.

    Falcons' Danny Etling: Heading to Atlanta

    The Atlanta Falcons claimed Danny Etling off waivers from the Patriots on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.Atlanta traded Eric Saubert to New England on Monday and within 48 hours, the Falcons signed the very player who was waived to make room on the Patriots' roster.

    Danny Etling: Waived by Patriots

    The Paitriots have waived Danny Etling, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.Following New England's selection of Jarrett Stidham in the fourth round of this past April's draft, Etling's path to a roster spot was murky. The 2018 seventh-rounder even saw some work at receiver during training camp in an attempt to carve out a utility role, but Etling was let go Tuesday to make room on the team's roster for trade acquisition Eric Saubert.

    Patriots' Danny Etling: Sees some positional work

    Danny Etling did some special teams work Thursday, working mostly with the New England Patriots' wide receivers, NESN's Doug Kyed reports.Drafted as a QB last season, Etling faces an uphill battle in regard to securing a 53-man roster spot, given that the Patriots took Jarrett Stidham in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. It's therefore not a bad idea for the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Etling to display some positional versatility, which is something the Patriots' coaching staff values. At this point, Etling doesn't seem likely to survive final cut-downs, but that could change if injuries thin out the team's QB depth. Another season as a New England practice squad member is probably the most likely scenario for Etling.

    Patriots' Danny Etling: Waived by Pats

    Danny Etling was waived by the New England Patriots on Saturday, Mark Daniels of The Providence Journal reports.The rookie seventh-round pick apparently didn't quite do enough to convince the Patriots they should keep three quarterbacks. Etling did have an 86-yard rushing touchdown in the exhibition finale thanks to a defensive breakdown, but he finished the preseason with a 52.6 completion percentage and just 4.7 yards per pass attempt. The Patriots likely will add him to the practice squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

    Patriots' Danny Etling: Roster spot largely up in air

    Danny Etling is expected to play most of Thursday's preseason finale, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.The rookie from LSU is considered a long shot to make the 53-man roster. The New England Patriots' decision to select Etling in the seventh round of April's draft came as a surprise to many, given the team's other needs and Etling's inconsistencies throughout his college career. However, if Etling can generate a productive effort Thursday, there's a chance he can persuade New England's brass that he's worthy of active roster consideration. Naturally, it's a tall task to read the mind of Bill Belichick.

    Patriots' Danny Etling: Sees brief action Thursday

    Danny Etling saw seven snaps in Thursday's preseason win over the Eagles, logging one incompletion and a sack in the process.Etling's play has yet to generate much buzz this summer and it's possible that the 2018 seventh-rounder ends up on the New England Patriots' practice squad, in the event that the team elects to roster just two QBs. Of course, if Etling ends up being cut, he could be scooped up on waivers. Either way, the 24-year-old is viewed as a developmental QB, and it would take a series of injuries to players above him on the depth chart for him to draw a regular-season NFL start this year.
