Falcons Sign DE A.J. Jefferson, Waive WR Bra’Lon Cherry


The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday that they’ve signed DE A.J. Jefferson to a contract and waived WR Bra’Lon Cherry.

Jefferson, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State back in May. He stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract.

Unfortunately, the Rams cut Jefferson loose a few weeks ago.

Cherry, 22, wound up signing on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State a few months ago. After he was cut loose by the Titans, Cherry caught on with the Falcons.

During his four-year college career at North Carolina State, Cherry caught 87 passes for 1,144 yards receiving and six touchdowns over the course of 44 games. He also contributed 535 punt return yards and another 356 kick return yards and one touchdown.
