Falcons release WR Harry Douglas, G Justin Blalock

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have released wide receiver Harry Douglas, who was third on the team with 51 catches in 2014, and starting offensive guard Justin Blalock.

The moves follow Thursday's release of running back Steven Jackson.

Douglas, a third-round pick in 2008, had career-high totals of 85 receptions for 1,067 yards in 2013, when he started in 11 of 16 games. Douglas, a third-round draft pick from Louisville in 2008, usually was the No. 3 receiver behind Julio Jones and Roddy White.

Blalock, a second-round pick from Texas in 2007, started all 125 games in which he played, including 15 in 2014.

On his Twitter feed on Friday, Douglas said "Thanking @AtlantaFalcons for my 7 years in ATL & the opportunity to play in the city I grew up. First class organization. Much luv 2 fans."
