Falcons have waived DE Takk McKinley

The Atlanta Falcons have waived DE Takk McKinley, per Adam Schefter.

McKinley a 2017 first round pick was waived Monday afternoon after a series of tweets that were posted on Takk McKinley’s Twitter account. He requested to be traded multiple times in 2019 and 2020. The Falcons did not trade him, despite receiving multiple offers from various teams.


Now the Falcons will move on without Takk McKinley and no additional picks. Seems like a costly move for the Falcons. McKinley will now get what he has been wanting, a fresh start with a new team. We will wait and see where he ends up.
