Buccaneers' Deadrin Senat: Another solid performance Sunday
Senat registered four tackles (three solo), including one for loss, during the Buccaneers' 21-3 loss to the Panthers in Week 7.
Senat made very good use of his brief time on the field -- 12 snaps -- by posting his second-highest tackle total of the season thus far. The fourth-year pro is filling his rotational tackle role well, but his opportunities are likely to remain capped at about 20 snaps per game as long as Vita Vea and Rakeem Nunez-Roches are healthy in front of him....

Buccaneers' Deadrin Senat: Nabs first sack against old squad
Senat recorded five tackles (three solo), including a sack, during the Buccaneers' 21-15 win over the Falcons in Week 5.
The fourth-year pro tied a season high with 17 snaps against his old squad and parlayed them into his first career sack. Senat is playing a rotational role and doing so on the interior of the Buccaneers' defensive line to boot, so solid tackle totals like his Week 5 tally are likely to be few and far between for the 28-year-old....

Buccaneers' Deadrin Senat: Signs one-year deal with Tampa Bay
Senat signed a one-year, league minimum deal with the Buccaneers on Friday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Senat was sidelined for the majority of the 2021 campaign due to an undisclosed injury and was waived by Atlanta in November after failing to make an appearance. He last played in 2020, when he had four tackles across five games for the Falcons. Auman suggests that Senat will challenge the returning practice-squad players for a backup spot on the initial 53-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Deadrin Senat: Cut off injured reserve
Senat (undisclosed) was cut off injured reserve by the Falcons on Monday.
Senat was waived/injured by the Falcons in early August and reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers, and he's now been let go by the team.

Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Out for training camp
Senat (upper body) will miss the remainder of training camp, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Moves to PUP list
The Falcons placed Senat (undisclosed) on the PUP list Thursday, John Deighton of the team's official site reports.

Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Sitting finale by coach's decision
Senat (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Senat has been a frequent healthy scratch this season, and he's only suited up for seven games the past two years. With two starts to his name over 22 career appearances, the 2018 third-round pick has been unable to secure a consistent role on the active roster. He closes out his third NFL season with four tackles and a fumble recovery over five appearances.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Deadrin Senat: No injury heading into Week 7
Senat (rest) did not participate throughout the practice week, but he is clear of an injury designation heading into Sunday's matchup against Detroit, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Senat hasn't yet missed a game this season because of injury, but he has already been a healthy scratch in three contests. The 26-year-old fielded 25 total defensive snaps Weeks 1 and 2, but he was subsequently benched Weeks 3 through 5. In Raheem Morris' debut as interim head coach last Sunday against the Vikings, Senat was active but he only garnered four defensive snaps.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Held out for MNF
Senat (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday night's matchup against the Packers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The 2018 third-round draft choice made it on the field for 25 combined defensive snaps Weeks 1 and 2 after garnering just two game appearances all of 2019, but Senat has now been held out due to coach's decision for back-to-back contests. With Senat out of the interior defensive line rotation, it will be reigning Pro Bowler Grady Jarrett, rookie Marlon Davidson and veteran Tyeler Davison who get the majority of the reps....

Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Shakes off injury
Senat (ankle) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Senat will suit up Sunday after logging 19 percent of the team's defensive snaps in Week 1. He should have a similar role against the Cowboys with rookie second-rounder Marlon Davidson (knee) considered doubtful.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Lands on injury report
Senat (ankle) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice session, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The third-year man out of South Florida popped up on the injury report Thursday, after registering two tackles on a shade under 20 percent of the defensive snaps Week 1 against the Seahawks. Senat was only active for two games during 2019 despite never officially being listed with an injury designation. This season he is poised to fill a rotational role along the interior of the Falcons' defensive line, but his status for a Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys comes into question with the reported injury....

Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Puzzling 2019 campaign concludes
Senat made two appearances for the Falcons during 2019 and recorded zero tackles.
The 25-year-old defensive tackle did not make his first appearance of the season until Week 15, after suiting up for 15 of Atlanta's 16 contests during his rookie campaign of 2018. He was drafted as a third-round pick out of South Florida and enjoyed a somewhat promising debut season, so his complete lack of involvement through the first three quarters of the year was puzzling. That is, until Senat put out a potential explanation via his personal Instagram account, showing himself getting ready to undergo an unspecified surgery. With one solid season to his name and another that can be considered a "throwaway" of some sorts, Senat's third year with the Falcons in 2020 becomes all important towards determining his future with the club....

Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Solid rookie campaign comes to close
Senat collected 30 tackles, two tackles for loss and three QB hits for the Falcons in 2018.
Senat did not end up settling into a feature role during his rookie season out of South Florida, logging just two starts and playing 34 percent of the snaps for a Falcons defense that ranked 25th against the run in 2018. With Terrell McClain's contract expiring this winter, however, it's foreseeable that Atlanta will embrace the youth movement and make Senat a more integral part of the team's identity defensively. Senat was a dominant run stopper during his collegiate career, and showed enough potential during his debut NFL campaign to merit increased playing time moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Healthy scratch in Week 12
Head coach Dan Quinn said Thursday that Senat was inactive against New Orleans due to a coach's decision to have more pass rushers available in the defensive rotation, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.
The rookie third-round draft choice wasn't acquired with the expectation that he would be a game-wrecking pass rusher, but coming off a six-sack season as a senior at South Florida, his goose egg in the sack column is slightly disconcerting. Senat has come close on a couple occasions at least, registering three quarterback hits this season despite only playing 33.5 percent of Atlanta's defensive snaps. The most discouraging aspect of this 2018 campaign for Senat is the fact that opposing starting running backs have rushed for over 285 yards and three touchdowns in his two starts. (James Conner and Nick Chubb combined for 394 total yards and four touchdowns in Week 5 and Week 10.) It remains to be seen if Senat will be reactivated for the Falcons' next game against Baltimore, facing a Ravens offense that elects to pass 59.1 percent of the time.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Deadrin Senat: Expected to play Sunday
Senat (shoulder) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Senat was a limited participant in all three of Atlanta's practices this week, but he lacks an official injury designation. The third-round rookie appears on track to suit up against the Browns in Week 10, and he'll play through a lingering shoulder issue. Senat will serve a rotational defensive role and could be a factor in trying to contain Nick Chubb and Cleveland's ground game.... See More ... See Less
