ESPN’s Michael Smith reported that New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Horn had reached an agreement with the Falcons. However, team spokesman Reggie Roberts indicated no agreement had been reached, and Horn remains unsigned at this point. But they are close.
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Horn was planning to visit the Green Bay Packers at some point later this week. If this will complicate matters is unknown at this point.
Horn first arrived in Atlanta on Monday to talk to team officials and take a physical. Horn has a chance to contribute immediately as a starter. Ashley Lelie, who started ten games last season at wide receiver, signed with the 49ers over the weekend.
