Falcons sign wide receiver to practice squad

Turns out Lil' Romeo grew up and decided to play wide receiver - USA TODAY Sports

The small-time roster shuffling continues.

In the potentially awkward aftermath of the Falcons releasing Brian Robiskie, son of receivers coach Terry Robiskie, the team promoted offensive tackle Terren Jones to the active roster.

Taking Jones' vacated spot on the practice squad: wide receiver Dominique Croom.

A former undrafted free agent who was picked up by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent this April, Croom is a 6-foot, 190-pound product of Central Arkansas. He was a definite deep-threat type of receiver in, averaging over 13 yards per reception as a senior, with good body control and a solid set of hands. Essentially he's not all that different than Darius Johnson, coming from a small school but showing enough promise to land with an NFL team.

With Roddy White no longer a young playmaker at 32 years-old, Julio Jones on IR and Harry Douglas drawing mixed reviews as a starting wideout, it certainly never hurts to add another young guy with potential.

Oh and since you were probably wondering, the 2014 NFL Draft is 160 days away.

A review of what Atlanta's practice squad looks like:

QB Seth Doege
WR James Rodgers
WR Dominique Croom
TE Mickey Shuler
DT Adam Replogle
LB Chase Thomas
CB Jordan Mabin
S Sean Baker
