Falcons Waiving WR Leonard Hankerson From I.R.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Falcons are waiving WR Leonard Hankerson from the injured reserve list on Tuesday.

Hankerson will need to pass through waivers before he can sign on with a team of his choosing.

Hankerson, 26, signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Falcons back in March. He’ll make a base salary of $745,000 this season and test the open market for the second straight offseason.

The Falcons placed him on injured reserve a few weeks ago to make room for WR/KR Devin Hester, who was activated from short-term injured reserve.

His 2015 season ends with him appearing in eight games and recorded 26 receptions for 327 yards receiving and three touchdowns for the Falcons.
