Falcons Sign Wide Receiver

The Atlanta Falcons have signed Damiere Byrd to a one-year contract. 

Byrd spent the 2021 season as a member of the Chicago Bears. In 17 games with the team, he had one touchdown, 26 receptions, and 329 yards. Overall, he wasn't particularly dominant, but he will be aiming to be a bigger force with Atlanta in 2022. 

Byrd will provide the Falcons with another receiver who possesses a decent amount of overall NFL experience. In 61 career games between the Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals, New England Patriots, and Bears, he has five touchdowns, 117 receptions, and 1,421 yards.

Overall, there's nothing wrong with the Falcons deciding to give Byrd a chance. It will be intriguing to see if how the veteran performs in Atlanta from here.
