Linebacker Edmond Robinson, who has been on the practice squad and shuttling back and forth to the game-day roster, was signed to the 53-man roster on Tuesday.

The Falcons created an open roster spot when they waived defensive end Takk McKinley on Monday.

Robinson, who played at Newberry, was originally selected by Minnesota in the seventh round (232nd overall) of the 2015 NFL draft. He also has played with the Jets and Cardinals, as well as the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football and the Houston Roughnecks of the XFL.

In six games, Robinson has seven tackles and one quarterback hit. He has played four games as a COVID-19 replacement and two as a standard practice squad elevation.
