Falcons' Colby Pearson: Waived/injury settlement by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pearson (hamstring) was waived/injury settlement by Atlanta on Friday, Jason Butt of The Athletic Atlanta reports.

Though Pearson was able to play three offensive snaps in last week's game against the Chiefs, it appears that the 23-year-old had not fully recovered from a nagging hamstring issue. A plethora of options in Atlanta's receiving room made Pearson inessential, and now he will attempt to stick elsewhere in the league. Because the Falcons and Pearson reached a settlement, the 2017 undrafted rookie out of BYU will not land on IR if he clears waivers.

Falcons' Colby Pearson: Signs on with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pearson agreed to a contract with the Falcons on Monday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

The 23-year-old Pearson joins a deep receiver room in Atlanta, with 13 players vying for what will likely be seven spots on the 53-man roster. Pearson collected 76 receptions for 864 yards in 30 career games at BYU between 2014 and 2016, and he spent time on the Packers practice squad last season. At 6-foot, 200 pounds Pearson is a shifty possession receiver, but he only exceeded 55 receiving yards on one occasion in his collegiate career (109 yards in his fourth career game against Boise State).

Colby Pearson: Released by Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers released Pearson (hamstring) on Wednesday.

Pearson had been dealing with a hamstring issue throughout OTAs, so he'll be cut loose on an injury settlement. The 23-year-old wideout finished the 2017 campaign on the Packers' practice squad and has yet to appear in a regular-season NFL game.

Packers' Colby Pearson: Sitting out OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pearson (hamstring) didn't participate in OTAs on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

After spending most of his rookie season unemployed, Pearson inked a deal with the Packers' practice squad in December and was retained for the offseason program. The BYU product is a long shot to make the roster behind a deep but young unit of wideouts.
