Falcons' Chris Rowland: Puts pen to paper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons signed Rowland to a reserve/future contract Monday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

An undrafted rookie out of Tennessee State, Rowland played in each of the Falcons' final two games in 2020. The 23-year-old contributed as a kick returner but didn't receive any offensive tread. Rowland will vie for a full-time role in 2021.

Falcons' Chris Rowland: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rowland was promoted to the Falcons' active roster Saturday.

Rowland saw his first action of the season with eight special teams snaps in Week 16, and he's been tasked with providing depth on the active roster again for the Falcons' season finale.

Chris Rowland: Slides back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rowland reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Rowland got involved with eight snaps on special teams during Sunday's road loss to the Chiefs, securing a fair catch in the first quarter. A Week 16 appearance marked the first of Rowland's career, and there remains a possibility the Falcons call him up once again for the team's season finale in Tampa Bay.

Falcons' Chris Rowland: Rises from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons elevated Rowland to the active roster Saturday.

Rowland will add depth at wide receiver because Julio Jones (hamstring) has been ruled out and Brandon Powell (foot) is considered questionable. The 23-year-old posted a 104-1,437-8 line in his senior season at Tennessee State. An undrafted rookie, Rowland could make his NFL debut Sunday against the Chiefs.

Chris Rowland: Heads to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rowland signed a deal to join the Falcons' practice squad Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Rowland's training camp efforts fell short of a spot on the 53-man roster, but he will have an opportunity to further prove himself to Falcons coaches in practice. Brandon Powell ended up winning the kick returner job during camp, while the Falcons will lean on Olamide Zaccheaus as both the No. 4 receiver and possibly the No. 2 returner option behind Powell. The Tennessee State standout provides depth should one of those players suffer an injury or struggle with on-field performance.

Chris Rowland: Falls short of roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rowland did not make the Falcons' 53-man roster, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

During a typical offseason, an undrafted free agent like Rowland would have the opportunity to prove himself in preseason competition. Devoid of inter-squad contests leading up to Week 1, however, Atlanta decided against signing a single undrafted rookie to the active roster. The Falcons elected to go with the experience of Brandon Powell at kick returner, but Rowland still may be presented an opportunity to develop his skill set as a member of Atlanta's 16-man practice squad.

Falcons' Chris Rowland: Competing for returner job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rowland has been splitting reps with Brandon Powell as the Falcons look to determine a primary return man for 2020, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports.

Coach Dan Quinn stated in April that Powell was the favorite to serve as Atlanta's return specialist, but it appears that the 2020 undrafted free agent is giving him a run for the position. Rowland was a statistical phenom during his time at Tennessee State, as his 104 receptions last year edged out Jerry Rice's 1984 FCS record of 103. He also proved to be extremely versatile, as Rowland was the only Division I player (FBS or FCS) to record a touchdown via a kick return, punt return, reception and rush during 2019. His offensive role will in all likelihood be marginal given how top-heavy the Falcons are at wide receiver, but Rowland certainly has a chance to make Atlanta's Week 1 roster by way of special teams.

Chris Rowland: Joining Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rowland has reportedly agreed to terms with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Rowland will reportedly receive $80,000 guaranteed in the deal. He was named first-team All-Ohio Valley Conference and offensive player of the year for FCS-level Tennessee State last season. Rowland had 104 catches for 1,437 yards and eight touchdowns, but his work in the return game (355 yards on kick returns, 166 yards on punt returns and two touchdowns) are likely his best path toward earning a roster spot.
