According to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Falcons signed veteran wide receiver Robert Ferguson on Thursday afternoon.
Ferguson spent six of his eight NFL seasons in Green Bay, where he was a second-round draft pick. In his career with the Packers and Vikings, the Texas A&M product has recorded 151 catches for 1,993 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Should any news about player signings — or workouts — become official, it will be reported on AtlantaFalcons.com.
The report is in line with the recent news of a season-ending injury to wide receiver Harry Douglas. The team is two receivers down thus far in training camp with the injury and the holdout of Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White.
