While rehabbing his knee, Falcons wide receiver Kerry Meier has travled to Brazil and Paraquay this offseason, according to the Kansas City Star.
In addition to getting in some traveling, he helped to start a foundation that honors his deceased brother Dylan.
Meier, a fifth round pick in the 2010 draft, appeared to have the team made before suffering a season-ending knee injury in an exhibition game against New England.
It doesn’t appear that he’s fully recovered yet.
“Not quite there yet, but I feel like I’m turning the corner, which feels good,” Meier told the Star. “It’s been a long time coming.”
With the drafting of Julio Jones, the continued recovery of Harry Douglas and the notion that Eric Weems can add more explosive plays to the offense, the wide receiver battles in training camp will be fierce.
