After seeing his stats, he may be a great addition to our recieving depth chart.

I think Bergeron has the inside track to be the team's No. 5 wideout this year. You can't help but not see his offensive potential, something I think he has over the other WRs after Finneran. I think he and Jennings will be the 4th and 5th wide receivers on the roster this year.

FYI, I believe the reason why AF.com is just now posting we signed Bergeron because of some rules about teams signing guys from the Arena League that are owned by the same owner. Since Blank owns the Force, when we sign a Force player, he has to go on waivers for a certain amount of days before we can officially sign him. I'm not sure how long the waiver claim is, but it's somewhere between 3-7 days.

Like I was saying in another thread, this guy def has a chance to stick. He's one of those slot guys taht looks like he was shot out of a canon 3 steps into a run. Of course in Arena league they get a head start, but the guys really fast. Very high twitch too, so he could make some pep miss too. As stated early, think Kevin Curtis of the Rams. Very good chance at being on the roster at the end of camp IMO.

there was something like 7-8 teams after him as an UDFA and he choose to sign here...obviously his signing was facilitated by the fact Blank owns both the Falcons and the Force, but the interest shown in leads me to believe he has enough talent to stick as our #5
