Robenson Therezie

Robenson Therezie had to do a lot of things right to go from an undrafted free agent to a member of Atlanta’s 53-man roster. First off, he had to learn the ins and outs of a new, pro-style playbook. Then he had to secure the coaches’ trust by exhibiting sound fundamentals and constant improvement. A young, somewhat raw commodity, he had to prove his worth on special teams, as well.

And most importantly, he had to take advantage of the chances granted to him during preseason. Therezie did just that when he intercepted Zach Mettenberger during Atlanta’s first exhibition game in August. According to the 24-year-old, that play is a big reason why he made the club.

Appropriately, his first regular season pick came against the same opponent and the same quarterback—only this time, the stakes were much higher: Therezie corralled a Mettenberger pass with less than two minutes left in regulation Sunday, all but ensuring the Falcons would leave Nashville with a 10-7 victory.
