Former Falcons wideout Kevin Cone heading to Miami

Jets Falcons Football AP

As injury plagued as they were last year, the Falcons didn’t get much out of wide receiver Kevin Cone.

But if you can run, you’re going to get a chance somewhere.

According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the speedy prospect is going to sign with the Dolphins.

He had interest from the Panthers and Jaguars this offseason, but is heading further south.

The former Georgia Tech wideout, who ran a 4.37 40 at his pro day, wasn’t tendered a contract as an exclusive rights free agent. He has one career reception, but couldn’t get on the field for the Falcons last year, despite injuries to Julio Jones and Roddy White.

    if he’s not afraid to hit he’d be a missile on special teams…

    Hopefully they see some kick return potential because thigpen was garbage last year.

    Never heard of him. The front office must have seen something they liked on tape. Especially after having one reception last season. Welcome Cone will be looking for you at training camp.
