Panthers' Austin Larkin: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin was added to the Panthers' active roster Saturday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Texans' Austin Larkin: Signs with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin signed a contract with the Texans on Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Larkin spent most of the 2019 season on the Falcons' practice squad but was promoted for the final two games. The Falcons ended up cutting Larkin in early August, and now he'll try to wade through a crowded defensive-end corps to secure a roster spot in 2020.

Austin Larkin: Let go by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin was waived by the Falcons on Tuesday, William McFadden of the team's official site reports.

The 25-year-old defensive end was one of three Falcons to be waived Tuesday, as he joined undrafted free agents Rojesterman Farris and Bryson Young in a quest to find new NFL homes. Larkin collected one tackle on a combined 36 defensive and special teams snaps during 2019, but he spent a significant chunk of the year residing on Atlanta's practice squad. Given that the Falcons currently have seven other players vying for consideration at defensive end, Larkin became expendable as Atlanta cut its roster down to 77 players with Tuesday afternoon's wave of transactions.

Falcons' Austin Larkin: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin was promoted to the Falcons' 53-man roster Tuesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

The 24-year-old was promoted to the active roster in late November and appeared in one game before being waived, and he'll now receive another chance on the 53-man roster. Larkin provides depth at defensive end with Takkarist McKinley (shoulder) sent to injured reserve and Vic Beasley (undisclosed) and Allen Bailey (personal) not fully available.

Austin Larkin: Cut by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin was waived by the Falcons on Tuesday.

Larkin was with the team for Week 12's loss to the Buccaneers and played just 11 special-teams snaps. He is likely headed back to Atlanta's practice squad.

Falcons' Austin Larkin: Picked up by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons promoted Larkin to their 53-man roster Saturday.

Larkin just signed with the Falcons' practice squad earlier in the week, so his promotion comes relatively quick. However, he is familiar with the team, as he spent training camp with the club. He is expected to provide depth at defensive end and presumably contribute on special teams.

Austin Larkin: Signs with Atlanta's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin joined the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 24-year-old defensive end was brought back in a corresponding move to Anthony Coyle being waived, a month and a half after Larkin himself was waived from the Falcons' practice squad. Larkin has yet to appear in a regular-season game, but for the time being he provides the organization with another developmental piece along the defensive line.

Austin Larkin: Let go by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin was waived from the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of reports.

The 24-year-old defensive lineman finished fourth on the team in tackles this preseason, but was not able to scratch the 53-man roster before being let go. Larkin, yet to appear in a regular-season contest since entering the league out of Purdue in 2017, may be worth a tryout for a team that is seeking a developmental backup or practice squad addition at defensive end.

Falcons' Austin Larkin: Breaks out against Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Larkin collected a team-high six tackles, along with two QB hits, one sack and one tackle for loss during Thursday's 34-27 loss to Miami.

The second-year man out of Purdue was one of the few bright spots Thursday in what was mostly an underwhelming performance for the Falcons defense -- the group allowed four touchdowns and two field goals on Miami's 12 offensive drives. General manager Thomas Dimitroff complimented the 24-year-old defensive end after the exhibition, saying that Larkin "Gets around the corner well with athleticism. He's not the fastest guy, but he plays fast." Larkin faces an uphill battle to secure a spot on the active roster with ample depth at defensive end, but he could be in the process of earning himself a shot elsewhere, should things not work out in Atlanta for 2019.
