The Atlanta Falcons worked out a trio of receivers on Tuesday, according to Aaron Wilson. The workout comes just one day after it was reported that star wide receiver Roddy White may be struggling through a high ankle sprain.
Seemingly just in case White is forced to miss time, the trio of receivers Atlanta worked out included Mohamed Massaquoi, Courtney Roby and Lavelle Hawkins. All three players started at least one game in the NFL last year, but were unable to find a squad this season.
Massaquoi spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Cleveland Browns, but failed to catch on after preseason stints with both the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets. The 6'1 receiver has hauled in just seven career touchdowns despite starting 43 of the 54 games he played with the Browns.
Roby was one of the New Orleans Saints' final roster cuts in late August, but he's better known for his kick returns than abilities in the receiving game. The 30-year-old has amassed just 25 receptions in his seven-year career, but averaged 25.6 yards per return with one touchdown during his five seasons in New Orleans.
Hawkins spent the first five years of his career with the Tennessee Titans, but signed with the New England Patriots this offseason. The 27-year-old receiver was cut by New England in July and then later cut by the San Francisco 49ers in the preseason, leaving him without a current spot on anyone's roster. The 5'11 receiver recorded five receptions and seven kick returns for the Titans last season.
There's no word on if the Falcons will sign any of the tree players.
