Ever since an incredible 5-0 start, the Atlanta Falcons organization has plummeted. After going on IR, the organization has decided to cut wide receiver Leonard Hankerson, allowing other teams to place claims on him. He had 26 receptions for 327 yards for three touchdowns. On the 44 targets Hankerson saw, he had eight dropped passes, meaning he dropped around every one out of five balls thrown his way.
The season has been tough on not just the players and team, but the fans. After such a great start, everything has gone to hell. Expect many familiar faces to be walking out of Flowery Branch in the upcoming months.
