T.A. McLendon signs as Falcons free agent


Associated Press


RALEIGH, N.C. - Oft-injured North Carolina State running back T-A McClendon has signed as a rookie free agent with the Atlanta Falcons, but there's a line ahead of him for a roster spot.


McClendon gave up his final year of eligibility to make himself available for the N-F-L draft, but he was never selected.


He scored 35 touchdowns for the Wolfpack, good enough for third-best in school history, but injuries stymied his progress.


McClendon missed one game as a freshman, when he was named the A-C-C rookie of the year and first-team all-conference after finishing with eleven-hundred-and-one yards rushing and 16 touchdowns. He missed four more games as a sophomore, then struggled with shoulder and hamstring ailments last season.


Atlanta was the top running team in the N-F-L last season thanks to quarterback Michael Vick, and running backs Warrick Dunn and T-J Duckett. The Falcons also picked running back DeAndra Cobb of Michigan State in the sixth round.

Im surprised that Jamaal Brimmer wasn't drafted. He used to be a top safety. I wonder what happened. Could be a steal.


His Wonderlic score was extremely low.
