Olamide Zaccheaus, a wide receiver, was tendered a contract worth $2.433 million by the organization.
As a former player for the University of Virginia Cavaliers, Zaccheaus had his most successful season in the National Football League to date in 2021. He finished the year with a career-high 31 receptions, 406 receiving yards, and three touchdowns.
The return of Zaccheaus is a relatively insignificant change, but it is an essential one considering the team’s lack of depth in the position.
The Falcons still have a significant hole in their offense, and Zaccheaus coming back won’t fill it because Calvin Ridley was suspended for the entire 2022 season for betting on games, and Russell Gage signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency.
The team signed players like Damiere Byrd, KhaDarel Hodge, and Auden Tate, but those players are anticipated to compete for the final receiver room places while the team chooses one or two receivers early in the draft.
The organization has tried to make moves without trying to break the already tight cap space.
How Much Does Olamide Zaccheaus Make?
Olamide Zaccheaus earns an average of $2,433,000 per year. Zaccheaus will have a base salary of $2,433,000 and a cap hit of the same amount in 2022.
