Updating a previous item, the Atlanta Falcons are working out free-agent QB Rex Grossman (Redskins) Tuesday, Aug. 25. Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is a supporter of Grossman from their time working together with the Washington Redskins, Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns. Backup QBs T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree have failed to do much during training camp.

Atlanta Falcons QB T.J. Yates knows he has to earn the backup quarterback job behind QB Matt Ryan. Yates is in an open competition with QB Sean Renfree. "We are competing at every position every single day. I have to earn my spot on this team, like everybody else," Yates said Saturday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Tip: In Friday's preseason opener, Yates completed 9-of-15 passes for 105 yards and an interception, while Renfree completed 6-of-7 passes for 68 yards. Yates has appeared in 14 regular season games in his career, but he hasn't thrown a touchdown pass since his rookie season in 2011. Renfree has never appeared in a regular season NFL game.

The Atlanta Falcons re-signed free-agent QB T.J. Yates to a one-year, $1.5 million contract Monday, March 9, a source said.
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 00:23:23 -0700
Atlanta Falcons QB T.J. Yates threw for two touchdowns and 243 yards in his team's 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: Yates had thrown 39 percent of his passes for completions prior to this outing, but this was a strong performance and could vault him into the No. 2 slot behind Matt Ryan. Yates carries little fantasy value unless he makes the roster and Ryan gets hurt, so watch the next couple days to see if he survives roster cuts.
Thu, 19 Jun 2014 05:20:33 -0700
The Atlanta Falcons acquired QB T.J. Yates from the Houston Texans in exchange for LB Akeem Dent.
Tue, 17 Jun 2014 19:04:32 -0700
The Baltimore Ravens are expected to look into signing free-agent QB T.J. Yates (Texans) after he was released by the Houston Texans Tuesday, June 17.
Tue, 17 Jun 2014 14:53:48 -0700
The Houston Texans released QB T.J. Yates Tuesday, June 17, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: This likely means that Case Keenum has the inside track over rookie Tom Savage as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Fri, 13 Jun 2014 12:00:04 -0700
The Houston Texans finished organized team activities Friday, June 13, without a starting quarterback. QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are competing for three roster spots. Fitzpatrick, who is expected to start Week 1, had a "decent offseason" and has done well picking up a new offense, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Savage hasn't been ruled out for the No. 2 position.
Fantasy Tip: Whoever ends up being the starter in Houston won't be worthy of starter status on your fantasy team. He'll be a bye-week replacement at best.
Mon, 09 Jun 2014 11:05:25 -0700
The Houston Texans likely would release QB Case Keenum or QB T.J. Yates if they decide to take only three quarterbacks to training camp, because QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage appear to be locks for the roster.
