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.
