Reports are out that the Falcons have released veteran reciever Joe Horn. This is the kind of pickup the Raiders need desperately. It will take some pressure off of Jamarcus and even some off of Walker. I hope we can get him soon. Here is the article from profootballtalk.
Joe Horn got his wish: He’s no longer an Atlanta Falcon.
Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the Falcons have given Horn his unconditional release, meaning he’s now an unrestricted free agent and able to sign with any team.
Per Schefter, the Falcons paid Horn the $2.5 million that was guaranteed in his contract, which may explain why Horn gave an interview on ESPN shortly after his release in which he had nothing but good things to say about the franchise.
The 36-year-old Horn started 12 games for the Falcons last season, catching 27 passes for 243 yards and one touchdown.
