Myrick agreed to terms with Atlanta on Saturday, while Stephone Anthony was released in a corresponding move, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Myrick brings two years of NFL experience, having appeared in five games for the Jaguars in 2017 before spending time on the Vikings practice squad in 2018. Cut by Minnesota in April, the 24-year-old now heads to Atlanta for an opportunity to vie for a backup defensive role or compete for snaps on special teams.
Myrick was waived by the Vikings on Thursday.
Myrick signed with Minnesota in January but now is being let go a day after the team signed ex-AAF safety Jordan Martin.
The Jaguars selected Myrick in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 222nd overall.
Myrick made the most of his Combine invite, running a blazing 4.28-second 40 to get his draft stock trending in the right direction. His tape and diminutive size (5-10, 200) point to Myrick being a slot corner at the next level, but his speed and elusiveness in the return game should help him crack the roster as a special teamer at the very least.
