In a salary cap driven move, the Atlanta Falcons released right tackle Tyson Clabo on Thursday.
Clabo told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he was surprised when notified early Thursday morning.
"I've been with the Falcons for eight years," Clabo told the AJC. "We're really disappointed, but at the same time we're excited about new experiences. We'll have to see where we go from here. This was definitely unexpected."
Clabo was expecting $4.5 million in 2013, which was part of the motivation for the franchise to cut ties with him.
Clabo had been with the Falcons since 2006, and didn't miss a start from 2008-2012.
