Mike Smith pleased with receiver depth

Mike Smith is pleased with how his receivers played against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith has admitted that he is happy with how his squad wide receivers performed in the recent win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Smith said that Harry Douglas could now start seeing more of the ball and was particularly impressed with Darius Johnson, who was only signed the day before the game.

"It was nice to see those guys have their opportunity to contribute," he told the club's official website. "We've known for a long time that Harry Douglas is an outstanding receiver; it's just that we haven't had an opportunity to always target him because of the other guys on our football team.

"There are only so many passes you can throw and targets when you've got other guys. It was nice to see Drew Davis and Darius Johnson is a great story. For him to come right off the practice squad on Saturday and make a big catch in the ballgame.

"He has earned it, he's worked extremely hard. I am proud of how the guys have worked. I thought Matt did a good job distributing the ball and going through his reads."

The Falcons face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
