Reports of Horn signing with the Falcons might be jumping the gun a little too early, like the Stallworth to Pats report. Little blurb from CBS Sportsline.com
ESPN.com quoted unnamed team sources as saying the team reached an agreement with Horn.

"It's not done yet," Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said on Wednesday night. "We haven't signed a contract, so he's not an Atlanta Falcon. We haven't reached an agreement, so he's not an Atlanta Falcon."

According to Joe Horn:

He told The Times-Picayune he was getting ready to sign a 4-year, $19 million deal with $7.5 million guaranteed in the first two years.

Full story from The Times-Picayune

But according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

but at just past 11 p.m. Wednesday, Horn and the Falcons agreed to a multiyear contract, believed to be for at least three years, with guarantees in the $2 million range.

It's a couple years too late for this signing. Joe Horn can still catch, but he can't run like he used to. I think Agle Crumpler will lead the team in receiving in 2007 for the fourth consecutive year.

Joe Horn is old...how much time did he spend on the DL last season? He isn't the player he once was, or the player HE thinks he still is. The Saints have some great receivers, they don't need Horn.

Great move for the Saints, terrible move for Horn. Doesn't he know he's too old and stiff to catch a ball near the ground? He's going to rip his tender hamstrings just THINKING about catching a Vick pass.
