The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday that they’ve waived WR Colby Pearson with an injury settlement.
Pearson, 23, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of BYU last year. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later added to their practice squad in December.
Green Bay brought Pearson back on a futures contract this past January only to cut him loose in June. The Falcons signed him to a contract a month later.
During his college career at BYU, Pearson caught 76 passes for 864 yards receiving and eight touchdowns over the course of three seasons and 30 games played.
