  • Falcons' Jared Bernhardt: Placed on reserve/retired list

    Bernhardt (groin) was placed on the reserve/retired list by the Falcons on Monday, Tori McElhaney of the team's official site reports.

    Bernhardt is set to retire from the NFL ahead of the 2023 campaign, but because his contract isn't up yet, he's been placed on the reserve/retired list. This move allows the Falcons to retain the rights to the wide receiver until his contract runs out. Bernhardt appeared in two games with Atlanta in 2022, failing to garner a target over nine offensive snaps.

  • Falcons' Jared Bernhardt: Makes initial 53-man roster

    Bernhardt made the Falcons' initial 53-man roster Tuesday, Jeff Schultz of The Athletic reports.

    Bernhardt caught five of seven targets for 102 yards and a touchdown across three preseason games and parlayed his strong play into a spot on the Falcons' initial 53-man roster. The highlight of his preseason came in Atlanta's first exhibition game, when he caught a game-winning, 21-yard touchdown on fourth down late in the fourth quarter. The undrafted rookie wideout was a star lacrosse player at Maryland before transferring to Ferris State to play quarterback. After excelling as a dual-threat weapon, the 6-foot-1 athlete tried out for Atlanta as a wide receiver. While the long shot made the roster, he'll likely have to carve out a role on special teams before he garners any offensive snaps.

  • Falcons' Jared Bernhardt: Plays hero with game-winning catch

    Bernhardt caught his only target for 21 yards and a touchdown during Friday's preseason opener against the Lions.

    Bernhardt played just nine snaps (seven offensive) but made the play of the night, catching a jump ball from rookie quarterback Desmond for the game-winning touchdown on a fourth-and-nine play with under two minutes left. The rookie wideout was a star lacrosse player at Maryland before transferring to Ferris State to play quarterback. After excelling as a dual-threat weapon, the 6-foot-1 athlete will try his hand at wide receiver for Atlanta, though he'll likely face an uphill battle to make the initial 53-man roster after the Falcons invested heavily in their wideout corps this offseason.
