Falcons Signing RB Jhurell Pressley

According to NFL Draft Diamonds, the Falcons are signing RBĀ Jhurell Pressley to a contract on Wednesday after they worked out a group of running backs.

Pressley, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of New Mexico back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the 53-man roster coming out the preseasonĀ but was later claimed off of waivers by the Packers.

Green Bay moved on from him soon after and he later joined the Falcons’ practice squad in October.

During his four years at the University of New Mexico, Pressley ran for 2,725 yards on 394 carries (6.92 YPC) to go along with 35 touchdowns.
