Marlowe hasn’t improved in 2015

Marlowe, 29, initially went unnoticed in 2015 before being picked up by the Carolina Panthers. He made the 53-man roster of the team as a rookie but had a limited role in his first year.

His NFL career in Carolina was cut short due to a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the 2016 season, and in 2017 the Panthers released him. He spent most of the 2017 season until the Buffalo Bills picked him in December, where he spent the next three years as a reserve on Buffalo’s practice roster.

But he comes to Atlanta after spending the 2021 season in Detroit. While there, Marlowe started nine games for the Lions, playing 65% of all saves and scoring a total of 67 tackles (37 solos) along with two defensive passes.

The Falcons’ unofficial ESPN depth chart listed Marlowe as their starting safe point, ahead of second-year rookie Richie Grant and newly signed free agent Teez Tabor.

It’s worth noting that Marlowe is a former teammate and from the same draft class as broad receiver Damiere Byrd, whom the Falcons hosted for a visit earlier in the week.

He also played a year in Detroit with the Falcons’ new extender, KhaDarel Hodge.
