NFL Free Agency 2012: Harry Douglas Close To Signing With Falcons, According To Report

Free agent wide receiver Harry Douglas is close to resigning with the Atlanta Falcons according to a report by WSB sports director Zach Klein. Douglas had received interest from the St. Louis Rams according to a previous report.

Douglas had a career year for the Falcons in 2011 catching 39 passes for 498 yards and one touchdown. Douglas was slotted into the No. 3 receiver slot in Atlanta behind starters Roddy White and Julio Jones. The Rams offer would provide Douglas with a bigger role in the St Louis offense and potentially a shot at being the No. 1 or No. 2 receiver.

Douglas was a third-round selection by the Falcons in the 2008 NFL Draft out of Louisville. In his career he has 84 receptions for 1,112 yards and three touchdowns.
