Former Washington State quarterback had himself a roller coaster of a Labor Day Weekend. On Saturday he got to watch his alma-mater start their season out with a victory, then would later find out that he was cut by the Tennessee Titans. A day later on Sunday, he was picked up by the Miami Dolphins.
The sixth-round pick struggled during his appearances for the Titans this preseason going 32 of 58 for 296 yards and a touchdown and interception in four games. Miami saw the light in him however as they added him with three quarterbacks already on the roster. Starter Ryan Tannehill and his backups Brock Osweiler and Davis Fales will all welcome Falk before their season opener September 9th.
The man that was on the other side of a lot of Falk’s passes, River Cracraft, was also released on Saturday by the Denver Broncos. He would then get added to their practice squad. Cracraft has been through this before as he struggled to consistently stay on the roster last season.
One of the more surprising moves this past weekend was done by The New York Jets when they released Frankie Luvu on Saturday. After recording six tackles (three for a loss), one sack, and two hits on the quarterback he earned himself some first team reps over the four games. The Jets would not completely get rid of him however as he would be signed to their practice squad.
Shalom Luani was also on the move this weekend as he was traded from the Oakland Raiders to the Seattle Seahawks just before final roster cuts were due. Luani was drafted in the seventh round in the 2017 NFL Draft an appeared in 16 games and tallied 14 tackles as a Raider in his first year.
