The Falcons have waived a wide receiver who started a pair of games for Atlanta a season ago.
According to Pro Football Focus, the 23-year-old Johnson played 412 regular season offensive snaps for Atlanta. However, PFF gave him the lowest rating of any of the club’s wide receivers. Johnson (5-10, 175) was targeted 43 times, according to NFL statistics.
The roster move leaves the Falcons with 89 players, including 12 wide receivers.
