The Atlanta Falcons are embracing something of a positionless offense under head coach Arthur Smith, but even with that considered, the wide receiver position is still looking rather thin going into the 2023 season. The Falcons obviously made a trade at last year’s deadline with the Jaguars, sending Calvin Ridley to Jacksonville and further depleting an already thin wide receiver group. They also lost Olamide Zaccheaus in free agency to the Eagles.
The Atlanta Falcons signed Mack Hollins to a one-year deal worth just $2.5 million after he had a career year with the Raiders in 2022. In Las Vegas last season, Hollins caught a career-high 57 passes for 690 yards and four touchdowns. He had a respectable catch rate just under 61 percent given it was high highest target volume ever. Even though the majority of the targets for Atlanta will go through Drake London, Kyle Pitts, and rookie Bijan Robinson, Hollins might play a bigger role than anyone really anticipated.
