Carson Meier: Joins Falcons' practice squad

Carson Meier: Let go by Falcons

Meier was waived by Atlanta on Saturday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The 24-year old tight end was activated for his first career regular-season game Thanksgiving night against the Saints and fielded a combined 34 offensive and special-teams snaps during the contest. With Austin Hooper returning for Week 14 -- and both Luke Stocker and Jaeden Graham expected to be active -- Meier's presence on the roster became unnecessary, though he may be brought back for a stint on the practice squad if he isn't scooped up by another team.

Carson Meier: Promoted to 53-man roster

Meier was signed to the Falcons' active roster Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The rookie tight end from Oklahoma is getting ready to suit up for his first regular-season game, as the Falcons find themselves in need of another option with Austin Hooper (knee-MCL) ruled out for Thursday's upcoming game against the Saints, and Luke Stocker (back) carrying a questionable designation. Meier will serve as a backup to Jaeden Graham during the Falcons' Thanksgiving night matchup, as Atlanta's passing attack clashes with the Saints' No. 15 pass defense.

Carson Meier: Candidate for bump to active roster

Meier could soon be elevated to the active roster with Austin Hooper (knee-MCL) and Luke Stocker (back) not practicing Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The rookie out of Oklahoma has been stashed on the practice squad as an emergency option in response to a recent rash of tight end injuries, and may be thrust into the lineup for a part-time role if Hooper and Stocker continue trending towards inactive designations for Thursday's upcoming matchup against the Saints. He hasn't yet appeared in a regular-season game this season, after suiting up for three exhibition contests in August as a member of the Jaguars.

Carson Meier: Released from practice squad

Meier was released from the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: It's the second time this season Meier has been cut from Atlanta's practice squad since failing to make the season-opening roster. The 24-year-old went unselected out of Oklahoma in April's draft.

Carson Meier: Gets practice squad call

Meier agreed to join Atlanta's practice squad Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: This will be the second stint with the Falcons' practice squad for the tight end, as he was recently released by the team last Wednesday. The undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma will hope this is the time to get a call to a 53-man roster in the league, as he caught 19 passes for 327 yards and four touchdowns last season with the Sooners.

Carson Meier: Cut from practice squad

Meier was released from the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma will now search for a practice-squad role with another team. Meier was mildly productive in college, recording 19 receptions for 327 yards and four touchdowns in his senior season.

Carson Meier: Joins Falcons' practice squad

Meier agreed to join Atlanta's practice squad Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: Meier spent part of the spring and summer with Jacksonville upon going unselected in April's draft, but since being jettisoned from the Jaguars roster on cut-down day, he now joins Atlanta as the 10th and final member of the practice squad. The 6-foot-6 Meier showed decent receiving chops as a senior at Oklahoma, accounting for 327 receiving yards while hauling in four Kyler Murray touchdown passes throughout the course of 2018. In addition to his pass-catching role, Meier was also deployed at fullback during his time with the Sooners, offering a versatile skillset that is enticing in a developmental backup tight end.

Carson Meier: Re-signs with Jaguars

Meier was signed to Jacksonville's active 90-man roster Saturday, according to the team's official Twitter account.

Analysis: Meier had signed with Jacksonville as an undrafted free agent back in April and gets another chance with the team. He'll provide depth from the bottom of the depth chart at tight end.

Carson Meier: Let go by Jags

Meier was waived by the Jaguars on Sunday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Meier signed with the Jaguars shortly after this year's draft. He will wind up back on the open market after the team elected to sign two other tight ends to the 90-man roster Sunday.
