The Atlanta Falcons added a wide receiver on Wednesday afternoon.

The team announced the signing of KeeSean Johnson while also announcing that Tyshaun James was waived to make room for him. 

Johnson is a former member of the Arizona Cardinals and played sparingly in the two seasons that he was there (2019-2020). He finished with 36 receptions for 360 yards and one touchdown. 

He then spent the 2021 season on the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad but never appeared in a game. 

We'll see if he can carve out a role and make Atlanta's 53-man roster before the Aug. 30 deadline.
