On the same day that the Falcons signed veteran wideout Robert Ferguson, who caught three passes in 2008, they added a guy who caught a few more passes last season.

Hmmm. Well he's pretty good if he's not tripping over his own feet and landing flat on his face. He won't be a game changer for ATL though.

They forgot they cant use him to scout us on Week 1 as the Triffecta cut almost every single player from the Cameron year

I think they probably have a handle on that.

Bit strange that move. Why not go for Harrison or Joe Horn?

Harrison has potential major legal issues pending. Horn? Dunno.

Well the opening day game just got a little more interesting.

So they have Booker and Peele. This comes a day after Harry Douglas lost his season with a torn ACL. A little bit of animosity towards Mr. Booker? Anyone?

Oh nos! He's gonna tell the Falcons all our secrets!!!

Hahaha just kidding. Good for Marty. I always liked him. Hope he makes the team.

Wow, I thought he was out of the league, I am glad he caught on with another team. I doubt he will contribute anything significant to the birdies' gameplan.

Not from me. I hope he's productive for Atlanta all season other than the first week.

He'll probably slaughter us on week 1 now.

But i think Booker could do well in Atlanta, playing in an offense that actually features a QB who can play football, alongside a WR in Roddy White who might be one of the best in the game. Booker's over the hill but he can still be a reliable player, they're not asking him to be their best WR like we were.

Booker was atrocious in Chicago last year and it wasn't due to lack of opportunity.
