How does 'Michael Vick to Noriaki Kinoshita for the touchdown!' sound? In a move that you would typically expect from baseball teams these days, the Atlanta Falcons signed Japanese wide receiver Noriaki Kinoshita to a deal on Thursday. Kinoshita has played with the Amsterdam Admirals in the now defunct NFL Europa league.

Kinoshita ranked fourth in the league in kickoff returns. As a receiver, he had 21 catches for 308 yards and two touchdowns. Kinoshita's best season in kick returns came in 2006, when he averaged 27.9 yards per return. Still, at this point however, it would be surprising if Kinoshita even lasted past training camp, considering the rarity of success for NFL Europa players in the NFL.
