Falcons OL Mike Person will switch back to right guard this season.
Person struggled in 14 starts at center last season. With Alex Mack now locked in at center, Person will compete for a role at his natural position. The Falcons have done a good job building their offensive line the last several seasons, but they could still use some help at guard. Mar 21 - 11:44 AM

Mike Person worked as the starting center at Falcons practice on Tuesday.

James Stone, who finished last season as the starter, was expected to take over following the release of Joe Hawley, but he was with the second team. New addition Gino Gradkowski was not at practice yet, but he could figure into the mix as well. The interior of the Falcons' offensive line got better following the addition of LG Andy Levitre, but it is still a big concern.

Mike Person has been lining up as the Falcons' starting left guard at OTAs.

Signed to a three-year, $3.35 million deal in the offseason, Person has never started zero of his 17 appearances since entering the league as a 2011 seventh-rounder. With Peter Konz and Sam Baker still recovering from injuries, Person will certainly face competition. He's no lock to even make the roster.

Falcons signed G/T Mike Person.

The Rams have now lost three offensive linemen in a span of 24 hours. Person gives the Falcons depth but little else. Person has experience at tackle and guard.

Rams claimed G/T Mike Person off waivers from the Seahawks.

A former seventh-round pick, Person's lone career appearance came in Week 1. The primary reason for his claim could be the intelligence he can provide on one of the Rams' division rivals.

Colts claimed G/C Mike Person off waivers from the 49ers.

Person was a seventh-round pick after being a consensus first-team All-American at D-IAA Montana. Person boasts solid size at 6-foot-5, 299 pounds, but has been forced to transition to the interior line due to short 32-inch arms. A left tackle in college, he'll provide depth at guard and can play center in a pinch.

49ers signed No. 239 overall pick G/C Mike Person to a four-year contract.

A consensus first-team FCS All-American, Person played left tackle at D-IAA Montana. He'll be kicked inside with the 49ers, and there's plenty of opportunity to move quickly with center David Baas now in New York.

49ers selected Montana G/C Mike Person with the No. 239 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Person, who goes 6-foot-5, 299, was D-IAA powerhouse Montana's starting left tackle last season and didn't allow a single sack all year, earning consensus first-team FCS All-American honors. Somewhat unfortunately, his arms are just under 32 inches, meaning he'll have to play guard (probably left guard) to stick in the pros. He finished his career with 48 straight starts.
