One guy who apparently had a good minicamp for the Falcons is receiver Troy Bergeron.

He was brought in for a tryout during the three-day session. After wrapping up camp Sunday, the Falcons turned around and signed Bergeron.

The former Arena League player may be a long shot, but there could be some openings in the receiver corps and that gives Bergeron a chance to make the roster. The Falcons are set with Roddy White, Michael Jenkins and Harry Douglas as their first three receivers.

After that, nothing's set in stone. The Falcons do have veteran Brian Finneran, but he's not guaranteed a job because he's 33 and doesn't play special teams. If Finneran doesn't stick, the Falcons could be looking for Bergeron and a bunch of other young receivers to fill two roster spots.
