Former LSU quarterback Danny Etling was waived by the New England Patriots yesterday, after their experiment to play him at wide receiver failed to show promise.

Today, he was claimed off waivers by the Atlanta Falcons.

Entering training camp this year, New England moved Etling to wide receiver and gave him a role on special teams.

It's unclear if the Falcons will have him compete primarily for a backup QB role, or continue the WR experiment.
