Geronimo Allison, a veteran receiver who tried out over the weekend during rookie minicamp, has been signed by the Atlanta Falcons.
The six-foot-3 wide receiver had spent his first four seasons in Green Bay after going undrafted out of Illinois.
The Packers had him catch 89 passes for 1,045 yards and six touchdowns.
The Lions signed him in 2020, but he opted out during that year due to COVID-19 uncertainties.
He returned to the team in 2021, but he played in only three games and did not record a catch.
Allison was brought in for an extended look at the Falcons over the weekend -- he was even seen working out after practice on Saturday -- before he officially arrived in Atlanta on Monday.
He joins a fairly open receiver room led by the Falcons' first-round pick this year, Drake London, Bryan Edwards (acquired by trade Friday from Las Vegas), Auden Tate, and Olamide Zaccheaus.
In addition to Tucker Fisk, a Stanford tight end who also played defensive end, Atlanta signed Montana State defensive back Tre Webb, a San Jose State player who also played at Montana State.
Three new Falcons were signed when wide receiver Chad Hansen, tight end Daniel Helm, and cornerback Luther Kirk were released.
