Falcons waive Darius Johnson


The Falcons have waived a wide receiver who started a pair of games for Atlanta a season ago.

The club announced Friday it had released second-year pro Darius Johnson, who hauled in 22 passes for 210 yards and a touchdown in 10 games after being promoted from the practice squad October 19.

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.

    Were I an NFC South team, I’d sign that young man and give him lots of attention, at least long enough to get the Falcons play book down.

    After watching Darius catch half the passes thrown his way for an average gain of less than 10 yards, Falcons brass got to their feet and did the waive.

    you wont need darius johnson to tell you that the falcons gameplan is to give it to steven jackson, julio jones, and roddy white, and more to the healthy ones when the others are hurt.
