McKissic, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State back in May. He was, unfortunately, waived coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad.
The Falcons promoted him to their active roster last week after they sustained some injuries at receiver. However, he was cut loose on Monday.
During his college career, McKissic caught 289 passes for 2,838 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns to go along with 379 yards rushing on 47 carries (8.1 YPC) and two rushing touchdowns.
