Falcons waive wide receiver Kerry Meier

The Falcons placed wide receiver Kerry Meier on waivers Monday.

In 2012, Meier spent the entire regular season and postseason on injured reserve. He reportedly missed time with a leg injury during the lead-up to the regular season.

A fifth-round pick of the Falcons in 2010, Meier spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a knee injury. In 2011, he appeared in 12 games for Atlanta, recording no statistics on offense.

Meier, 26, played collegiately at Kansas, beginning his career at quarterback before Todd Reesing took over the job. Meier’s brother, Shad, was a tight end for the Titans (2001-2004) and Saints (2005), catching 42 career passes.

    He should get picked up by someone before training camp starts this year.

    So he has zero catches in 3 years??? I wouldn’t even recommend the Vikings consider this guy. Slow news day I guess.

    Anytime I see some obscure player release post, I know it’s this author. I understand getting content out, but retiring about Kerry Meier is just weird. Most ppl don’t know him from college or pro. And this is coming from a Falcons season ticket holder..

    I thought this guy would be a good player after he got drafted. He was looking great in the 2010 training camp. That knee injury in preseason really derailed him and he ended up primarily a special teamer. Best of luck to him in the future.

    Kerry is built like a linebacker. But most linebackers catch more passes than he does.

    He played at Kansas. What’d you expect?
