Falcons Worked Out 6 Players

According to Howard Balzer, the Atlanta Falcons brought in six free agents for workouts on Wednesday.

The full list includes:

  • DE Ricky Ali’ifua
  • TE Anthony Firkser
  • DT Joey Ivie
  • DT Nigel Williams
  • FB Malcolm Johnson
  • LB Kevin Snyder

Of this group, the Falcons signed Ivie to their practice squad.

Johnson, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was in the second-year of a four-year, $2,399,452 rookie contract and was set to make a base salary of $525,000 this season when Cleveland cut him loose back in October.

The Seahawks signed him to their practice squad and eventually made his way to the active roster, but Seattle decided to waive him to make room for WR Kevin Smith back in December.

Johnson returned to the Seahawks on a futures deal this past January but was waived and reverted to the injured reserve after clearing waivers. Seattle elected to release him from their injured reserve.

In 2016, Johnson appeared in seven games for the Seahawks and recorded five receptions for 44 yards and lost one fumble. He also contributed one rushing attempt for two yards.
