Geronimo Allison: Let go by Atlanta
The Falcons waived Allison on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Allison joined Atlanta this offseason after two disappointing seasons in Detroit, but he finds himself among a wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 80-man roster deadline. The 28-year-old caught six touchdowns across four seasons in Green Bay, but he has yet to find any NFL success since.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Geronimo Allison: Signs with Atlanta
Allison signed with the Falcons on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Allison heads to Atlanta coming off of a disappointing tenure with the Lions over the past two seasons. The 6-foot-3 wide receiver did not register a single reception while seeing just two targets over three games this past season after opting out of the 2020 campaign due to COVID concerns. Allison now joins an influx of receiver talent for Atlanta and likely will compete with fellow veterans Damiere Byrd and KhaDarel Hodge for a depth role heading into the 2022 season.... See More ...

Geronimo Allison: Signed to practice squad
Allison re-signed with the Lions' practice squad Thursday.
Allison has played in three games with Detroit this season but hasn't brought in either of his two targets. In his four-year stint with the Packers prior to joining the Lions, Allison recorded 1,045 receiving yards across 46 games. The 27-year-old was waived by the Lions on Tuesday after his two weeks of practice-squad eligibility was up, and given the team's generally thin depth at receiver, he's likely to be promoted to the active roster before the end of the season....

Lions' Geronimo Allison: Inactive for Week 8
Allison (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.
Allison was active for the Lions last two contests, but he failed to record a catch on just two targets. KhaDarel Hodge will likely continue to operate as Detroit's No. 3 wideout behind Kalif Raymond and Amon-Ra St. Brown.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Geronimo Allison: Gets two targets
Allison was targeted twice but did not record a catch during Sunday's 28-19 loss to the Rams.
In his second game of the season, Allison shared the No. 3 role at wide receiver with KhaDarel Hodge while Kalif Raymond and Amon-Ra St. Brown clearly ran as the top dogs. However, it will probably take a lot more for Allison to become a worthwhile fantasy contributor with Jared Goff after he failed to do so with Aaron Rodgers from 2016 to 2019.... See More ...

Lions' Geronimo Allison: Inked to active roster
The Lions signed Allison to the active roster from the practice squad Wednesday.
Allison handled 12 offensive snaps (20 percent) and 15 special-teams snaps (60 percent) during Week 6's loss to the Bengals, though he wasn't targeted in the contest. With Quintez Cephus (collarbone) out for the season and Tyrell Williams (concussion) still not back from IR, Allison now looks set to play a similar depth role versus the Rams in Week 7....

Lions' Geronimo Allison: Return to Motown in store
Allison was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.
Saturday's designation marks Allison's second stint with the Lions, though he technically never played a game with them after opting out of the 2020 season. With the Lions decimated at wide receiver with both Tyrell Williams (concussion) and Quintez Cephus (collarbone) on injured reserve, Allison already represents the most veteran pass catcher among a depth chart that includes likely starters Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond. It's possible the longtime Packers wide receiver could push KhaDarel Hodge for work as the No. 3 wideout this week against the Bengals.... See More ... See Less
Geronimo Allison: Joins Detroit's practice squad
The Lions signed Allison to their practice squad Wednesday.
The Lions top wideout Tyrell Williams was placed in concussion protocol after taking a hard hit in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. Detroit has a group of unproven pass catchers behind Williams, so Allison will offer some insurance if Williams is unable to suit up in Week 2.... See More ... See Less
Geronimo Allison: Released by Detroit
The Lions released Allison on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
After opting out of the 2020 campaign due to COVID-19 concerns, Allison wasn't guaranteed a spot on the initial 53-man roster this season. It was reported early in training camp that his chances of making the roster relied heavily on his ability to contribute on special teams. Despite his struggles on special teams, Allison could garner interest from teams looking for help at wideout. Before joining Detroit, he racked up 1,045 yards and six touchdowns over four years with Green Bay.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Geronimo Allison: Uncertain to earn roster spot
Allison's chances of making the roster likely will depend on his ability to contribute on special teams, Nick Baumgardner and Chris Burke of the Athletic report.
After opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns, Allison is competing with a totally different group of receivers in Detroit compared to the one that was headlined by Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones last year. However, nothing has changed in the sense that Allison is a long shot to reemerge as a significant fantasy contributor. In fact, with Baumgardner and Burke noting that Victor Bolden and Kalif Raymond could be competing for the Lions' last roster spot at wide receiver, Allison is not guaranteed to even log offensive snaps for Detroit in 2020. However, Allison's saving grace could be on kickoff and punt coverage, which is how Allison fit in on special teams during spring practices.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Geronimo Allison: Won't play in 2020
Allison opted out of the 2020 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Allison flashed occasionally in four seasons in Green Bay, but he only surpassed 300 yards in one of them, combined for six touchdowns and had 89 catches in 46 games. He was set to vie with Marvin Hall and rookie Quintez Cephus for slotting near the bottom of the regular-season roster, so Allison's decision likely makes the Lions' own roster decisions easier for the upcoming campaign....
