Atlanta Falcons work out four wide receivers, sign one

The Atlanta Falcons lost star wide receiver Julio Jones for the remainder of the season.Their other star wide receiver, Roddy White, is questionable and has been dealing with an ankle issue and then pulled his hamstring on Monday night in a loss to the New York Jets.

To fill the void, and help with the depth at the position, the Falcons worked out four wide receivers: Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi, Courtney Roby and Matt Willis.

They decided to sign Brian Robiskie, who was played for three teams in his career: the Cleveland Browns mainly, the Jacksonville Jaguars briefly and one season with the Detroit Lions.

In Robiskie’s career he has appeared in 37 games, started 14, caught 43 passes 485 yards and four touchdowns. His best season came as a started in Cleveland in 2010. That year, he caught 29 passes for 310 yards and 3 touchdowns.

He might not get a lot of playing top as he just fills in the bottom of the depth chart.
