Douglas will visit the Titans on Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Douglas was released by Atlanta in late-February, and represents a potentially valuable addition as a slot receiver in free agency, especially for teams that are unable to dish out the high salary required for top free agent Randall Cobb. The 30-year-old hauled in 51 passes for 556 yards and two touchdowns over 12 games in 2014, and although this line doesn't live up to his 2013 numbers, his 7.5 yards per target is not a major dropoff from the year before. If the two sides are able to work out a deal, Douglas could see a slight uptick in targets in a less talented group of receivers, but the quality of quarterback play would remain a question mark.

Douglas has been released by the Falcons, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.

A solid No. 3 receiver for most of his six seasons in Atlanta, Douglas exploded for a 85-1,067-2 receiving line in 2013, when Roddy White and Julio Jones were severely limited by injuries. Douglas doesn't stick out in any one regard, as he's 5-11 with average athletic ability for his position. Still, while there's not a whole lot to get excited about, he's a solid enough player that there will likely be teams with interest in bringing him in as a No. 2 wide receiver. Expectations should remain modest, but a move away from Atlanta could very well boost Douglas' fantasy outlook for 2015.

Douglas is a candidate to be released this offseason, NFL.com reports.

The Falcons would save a modest $3.5 million against the 2015 cap by cutting Douglas, but the move still makes some sense for a team that needs to devote a ton of resources to the defensive side this offseason. Douglas would likely draw plenty of interest from other teams as a potential No. 2 or 3 receiver.

Douglas caught 51 balls for 556 yards and two touchdowns in 2014.

Douglas once again played third fiddle to Julio Jones and Roddy White in the passing attack. Douglas had his second best season of his career in 2014, but his numbers declined from 2013 when injuries pushed him into a larger role in the offense. He'll be in a contract year in 2015, which tends to light a fire under players.

Douglas (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Both Roddy White (ankle) and Julio Jones (hip) will play Sunday, which obviously puts a dent in Douglas' upside. However, if Jones' hip limits his snaps, Douglas stands to benefit. He had 10 catches for 131 yards in the game Jones missed two weeks ago.

Douglas (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Douglas should be good to go for Week 17, but his potential fantasy output will depend squarely on whether or not fellow receiver Julio Jones (hip) is able to take the field. It seems more likely that Jones plays Sunday than not, so those considering Douglas in Week 17 will likely want another option available.

Douglas (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Douglas' weekly output is contingent upon Julio Jones' (hip/oblique) availability, but even with Jones active last Sunday, Douglas managed four catches (on seven targets) for 47 yards. While Jones failed to practice to kick off the week, the absence was likely precautionary, meaning a bit role may again be in Douglas' future Sunday against the Panthers.

Douglas (foot) had four catches on seven targets for 47 yards during Sunday's win over the Saints.

The return of Julio Jones from a hip injury took a decent chunk out of Douglas' workload, as his seven targets were half his total from Week 15 against the Steelers, when he had 10 catches for 131 yards. Jones' presence on the field will continue to be Douglas' biggest obstacle in putting up big fantasy numbers, and with Jones fully expected to play in Week 17 against the Panthers, Douglas could have his targets limited once again.

Douglas (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Douglas was held out of practice Wednesday, but he's good to go after a full practice Friday. Julio Jones (hip) is also active, but could very well be limited, opening up more opportunities for Douglas after he caught 10 passes for 131 yards in Week 15 against the Steelers.

Douglas (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Douglas missed Wednesday's practice, but he practiced Thursday and Friday, including a full practice for the latter day. If Julio Jones (hip, questionable) sits out again, Douglas should get a healthy target count against the Saints.
