Peter Konz was a bust. He was a second round pick in the 2012 draft out of Wisconsin. The Falcons hoped he'd one day replace Todd McClure at center. Instead, he leaves without every really making an impact.
The Falcons reached an injury settlement with Konz Tuesday, ending his three-year career in Atlanta. Konz tore his ACL last October. He had more knee issues last month in training camp.
Konz was expected to join Lamar Holmes, a third round pick in 2012, on the offensive line for years to come. But Konz was pushed around on the line of scrimmage and never looked like a starter, even though he was pressed into action due to injuries of others.
Konz played in seven games last season, starting three times. In 2013, Konz was forced into action due to injuries of others, and he played in all 16 games with 15 starts. In his rookie season, Konz played in all 16 games and started 10 times.
The Falcons continue to try and create an offensive line. The subtraction of Konz perhaps gives Jon Asamoah a better chance of making the roster.
The roster stands at 75, with the next cut coming before Saturday's 4:00 pm ET deadline.
