FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Amidst the emergence of Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel last season, people may have forgotten that the Falcons also have a pretty good receiver in Justin Hardy.
Hardy issued a reminder of just how good he can be in his third season with the team. Going up against star cornerback Desmond Trufant, Hardy made an incredible diving catch that highlights his intense concentration when the ball is in the air. He followed up that play with another great catch on the next possession.
Last season, Hardy caught 21 passes for 203 yards and four touchdowns. The Falcons' receiving corps is already among the very best in the NFL. If Hardy continues to make plays like this one, it has the potential to be even better.
