Falcons Sign WR Leonard Hankerson


The Atlanta Falcons and Ex-Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson have agreed to a 1-year, $1 million deal. The move has been rumoured since last night when Hankerson tweeted off of his Twitter account, “ATL, where’s all my #DirtyBirds???” Hankerson comes in after being drafted out of The University of Miami in 2011. He played in 1 game last season. Atlanta cut Wide Receiver Harry Douglas earlier in the offseason, so Atlanta needed a #3 receiver for Matt Ryan. Hankerson now reunites with his former Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Hankerson has a year to prove his worth for the Falcons and I expect him to go out and prove he is worth more than what he has received. Hankerson is a good low-cost move for the team.
