Hesse, 25, was signed to the Tennessee Titans practice squad as an undrafted free agent in 2019 — the same year Arthur Smith took over as the team’s offensive coordinator. A former defensive end at the University of Iowa, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Hesse should provide depth for the Falcons as a blocking tight end.

Jones, 25, is an athletic guard and former sixth-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2018. He was released by the Colts on Wednesday, and while he’s yet to make an NFL start, he has upside in a zone scheme like the one Smith will run in Atlanta.
