Rookie undrafted free agent wide receiver Stanley Berryhill is the latest reported cut for the Falcons today, and the second wide receiver the team has cut from a deep group.
Berryhill was, as ESPN’s Mike Rothstein notes, a camp standout who came to the NFL already looking like a capable special teamer. His role and his production were quieter in preseason, and ultimately he did not stand out enough in a wide receiver group that the Falcons had stocked up over the summer.

Berryhill flashed during camp. Good, young player in a crowded room.
Like Frank Darby, Berryhill is a possibility for the practice squad as a developmental receiver and potential special teams call-up if the injuries strike the Falcons. I’m less certain that he’ll ultimately make the practice squad—at least until we know what’s happening with Jared Bernhardt—but I think he showed enough over the summer to find a home somewhere pretty quickly. We’ll see if Berryhill returns to Atlanta, but if not, we wish him well.
