Falcons Releasing J. Horn, Dallas or Philly Next?

The Atlanta Falcons informed veteran wide receiver Joe Horn today that he was being released.

The move ends a standoff between the team and Horn, who had said since the spring that he wanted to be traded or released.

It is thought that Horn could end up in Dallas as the Cowboys' replacement for veteran wideout Terry Glenn, who was released. The Philadelphia Eagles also have been mentioned as a possibility.

Horn, 36, has played a dozen NFL seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and Falcons. He topped 1,200 receiving yards in four of his seven seasons with the Saints.

But he has failed to reach 700 receiving yards in any of the last three seasons, and he had only 27 catches for 243 yards last season for the Falcons.
