Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Secures game-clinching turnover
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson collected four tackles, one tackle for loss and an interception during Thursday's 25-17 win against the Panthers.

Carolina was mounting a threatening two-minute drill Thursday night while down eight points in the fourth quarter. Teddy Bridgewater led the Panthers down to the Falcons' 30-yard line with 65 seconds to go, but on the ninth play of the drive, Wreh-Wilson stepped in front of a pass intended for DJ Moore to secure a game-icing takeaway. A head injury to Kendall Sheffield partway through the contest allowed for Wreh-WIlson to play his third-highest defensive snap count of the season (30), and he may have earned more opportunities moving forward with his clutch performance.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: To start against Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson is expected to start now that A.J. Terrell (Reserve/COVID-19 list) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Bears, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Falcons currently rank 31st in the NFL at 372 passing yards allowed per game with Terrell playing Weeks 1 and 2, but now Atlanta will be left with Wreh-Wilson, Darqueze Dennard, Isaiah Oliver and recent practice-squad callups Delrick Abrams and Tyler Hall as its available cornerbacks. Wreh-Wilson has played a combined three defensive snaps over the first two weeks, but he may be asked to take on a considerable defensive workload against Chicago's 29th-ranked pass offense.

Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Back in Atlanta for another year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson agreed to a one-year contract with the Falcons on Sunday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Wreh-Wilson returns to Atlanta after an unremarkable season in which he recorded 24 tackles and seven pass breakups in 14 games. He should continue to operate in a depth role for the team in 2020.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Produces no turnovers in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson collected 24 tackles and broke up seven passes across 14 games (two starts) for the Falcons in 2019.

Wreh-Wilson has notched just one interception across 60 career regular-season games, but he at least performed adequately during the current campaign while shouldering an enhanced defensive role. He played 50-plus percent of the defensive snaps in every outing between Weeks 14 and 17, providing him with his first four-game stretch with a majority defensive snap share since 2014. The veteran defensive back and special-teams contributor is set to become a free agent, but there remains the possibility that Atlanta brings him back for a fifth season with the club.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson (groin) is not listed on the Falcons' injury report ahead of Sunday's Week 7 game versus the Rams.

Wreh-Wilson was able to log a full practice Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Barring any setbacks, he should take on a bigger role than usual in the Falcons' secondary, as Desmond Trufant (toe) will be sidelined.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Back-to-back limited practices
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson (groin) was a limited participant for Thursday's practice, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The 29-year-old defensive back has been unable to get back on the field since sustaining a groin injury during the Week 4 loss against his former team, Tennessee. Wreh-Wilson was not able to practice at all leading into Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, so the fact that he has been capable of logging back-to-back limited sessions suggests there is a chance of him being active when the Falcons take on the Rams' sixth-ranked passing attack in Week 7.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: To miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson has been ruled out for the Falcons' Week 6 matchup against the Cardinals, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran cornerback is in line to miss his second straight contest after playing on a combined 13 defensive snaps and 33 special teams plays between Weeks 1 and 4. Had he himself not been injured, Wreh-WIlson may have seen more involvement in the defensive rotation as result of Desmond Trufant (toe) being inactive for this game, but it will instead be rookies Kendall Sheffield and Jordan Miller who see an uptick in playing time against Arizona's 17th-ranked pass offense Sunday.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Sidelined Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson (groin) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Houston, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Wreh-WIlson suffered the groin injury last week versus the Titans and was unable to practice this week. The 29-year-old has played only 13 defensive snaps this season, so the Falcons' defense is unlikely to be significantly impacted.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Suffers groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson was forced out of Sunday's game with the Titans with a groin injury, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

He was initially deemed questionable to return, but Wreh-Wilson didn't return. The 29-year-old mainly plays on special teams, and he may be held back in practice during the week ahead.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Agrees to extension with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson agreed to a one-year contract extension with the Falcons on Friday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Wreh-Wilson was set to become a free agent upon the dawn of the new league year March 13, but the Falcons elected to bring him back on a "prove it deal." Having spent three years in both Tennessee and Atlanta since being drafted as a third-round pick out of Connecticut in 2013, Wreh-Wilson has struggled to develop into a reliable cover man at the professional level, though he has proven to be a competent special teams contributor. The 29-year-old will compete for a role on kickoff and punt coverage, while providing depth for a secondary that's otherwise undergone considerable turnover in the early offseason.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Quiet 2018 campaign concludes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson picked up four tackles and two pass deflections in three appearances for the Falcons this season.

Atlanta's drafting of Isaiah Oliver in the second round of April's draft compressed Wreh-Wilson's role within the Falcons defense, as he fielded just 30 defensive snaps this season compared to 65 last year. Accounting for a decrease in special teams involvement as well, Wreh-Wilson saw a 50.7 percent reduction in snap count between 2017 and 2018. With his contract expiring over the offseason, Wreh-Wilson's future with Atlanta remains up in the air.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson (shoulder) was not listed on Atlanta's injury report Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Wreh-Wilson was sidelined for the Falcons' season opener due to a shoulder injury but appears to have made a full recovery. The veteran seems likely to suit up Sunday against the Panthers, providing Atlanta with essential cornerback depth.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson (shoulder) will not suit up against the Eagles on Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Wreh-Wilson suffered a shoulder injury in the team's preseason finale against the Dolphins, and has been sidelined from practice since. The Falcons will enter Week 1 with less depth at the cornerback position than expected, with both Wreh-Wilson and Isaiah Oliver (ankle) injured.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Does not practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson (shoulder) did not participate in practice Monday or Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The cornerback's status for Thursday's season opener doesn't look promising at the moment. However, look for his practice status on Wednesday to give a clearer indication to whether or not Wreh-Wilson will be active for the contest.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Sustains shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson left Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins with a shoulder injury, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The specifics of the injury are not yet known, but Wreh-Wilson was ruled out from returning to the game. The 28-year-old signed his third consecutive one-year deal with the Falcons in March and will serve as a depth corner and special teams contributor if he remains on the 53-man roster.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Re-signs with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson signed a one-year contract with the Falcons on Thursday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Wreh-Wilson signed his third one-year deal with Atlanta in as many years. In eight games last season, the cornerback recorded just four tackles and one pass defensed. He'll continue to be a depth secondary and special teams player for the team in 2018.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Staying in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson signed a one-year contract extension with the Falcons on Friday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Wreh-Wilson joined the Falcons in late November but only managed to take the field once last season. He'll head into the offseason vying for a spot on the 53-man roster as a depth cornerback and special teamer.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson was signed by the Falcons on Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlantic Journal-Constitution reports.

The defensive back was released by the Falcons three days ago but now resurfaces after they waived offensive tackle Kevin Graf. Look for Wreh-Wilson to resume his regular role as a depth option at cornerback.

Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Released by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wreh-Wilson was released by the Falcons on Friday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Wreh-Wilson barely lasted a week on the Falcons' roster after expecting to provide depth at cornerback, while the team was able to promote receiver Nick Williams due to Wreh-Wilson's release.

Falcons' Blidi Wreh-Wilson: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons signed Wreh-Wilson on Tuesday, Curtis Jackson of the team's official site reports.

Wreh-Wilson has been biding his time on the free-agent market since his release from the Titans near the end of the preseason slate. The move to sign Wreh-Wilson was necessitated by the placement of Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant (pectoral) on injured reserve.
