FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -The Atlanta Falcons have cut veteran wide receiver Joe Horn.
The 36-year-old Horn was released on Tuesday by the Falcons, who will receive no return on his guaranteed $2.5 million salary for 2008.
Horn was a disappointment in 2007, when he caught only 27 passes for 243 yards and one touchdown after signing a four-year, $14.5 million deal.
Horn sat out voluntary workouts, did not play in the team's first two preseason games because of a hamstring injury and asked to be traded.
The Falcons also have cut ties with veterans Warrick Dunn, Rod Coleman, DeAngelo Hall and Alge Crumpler as they begin a rebuilding season.
Horn, a 1996 draft pick by Kansas City, played seven years with New Orleans before signing with Atlanta.
