FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday that they have agreed to terms with wide receiver Justin Hardy on a one-year contract.
Hardy, 27, was drafted by the Falcons in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. During his four seasons with the Falcons, Hardy has proven himself to be a reliable reserve receiver and a core part of Atlanta's special teams, returning 20 punts for 147 yards in 2018. Hardy has caught 76 passes in his career for 751 yards and nine touchdowns.
Hardy is the sixth free agent the Falcons have added this offseason, all of which have been on the offensive side of the ball. With Hardy back in the mix, the Falcons will return their four most productive wide receivers from last season.
