FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) _ The Atlanta Falcons waived quarterback Tony Graziani on Wednesday and signed free agent linebacker Chris Bordano.

Graziani, a seventh-round draft choice out of Oregon in 1997, was in his fourth season with Atlanta.

Bordano was waived prior to the regular season by the Dallas Cowboys.

The 6-foot-1, 241-pounder played two seasons with the New Orleans Saints after being drafted in the sixth round out of Southern Methodist in 1998.

Bordano started 18 games in his two seasons with New Orleans before being traded to the Cowboys in the offseason.
