ATLANTA (AP)

The Atlanta Falcons have cut quarterback John Parker Wilson and nine others to reach the NFL's 53-man roster limit.

The team included 2011 seventh-round draft pick Andrew Jackson, an offensive guard from Fresno State, among Saturday's cuts.

The cuts leave the Falcons with Chris Redman as the only backup to starting quarterback Matt Ryan. Wilson, from Alabama, was Atlanta's third quarterback but did not appear in a game in 2010

The team also cut center Brett Romberg, safety Rafael Bush, receivers Kevin Cone and Drew Davis, linebacker Robert James, defense end Emmanuel Stephens and tackle Jose Valdez.

The team reached an injury settlement with tight end Ryan Winterswyk.

Two undrafted rookies, cornerback Darrin Walls of Notre Dame and defensive tackle Carlton Powell of Virginia Tech, made the team.
