Falcons sign OL Bruce Irvin

Bruce Irvin says Patriots offered more money but he chose Falcons

And his home is Atlanta, not Seattle. This meant Irvin became a free-agent on Tuesday.

The deal means Irvin will reunite with Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, who spent two seasons as Irvin's defensive coordinator with the Seattle Seahawks in 2013-14.

Audio recordings related to Khashoggi's killing shared with Saudi, other officials: Erdogan
On Saturday, the Turkish newspaper the Daily Sabah reported that the Saudis poured Khashoggi's dissolved remains down a drain. President Donald Trump has reiterated he does not want to jeopardise money coming into the United States from Saudi Arabia.

He joins a Falcons defense that has been hit hard by injuries.

The pass rusher was cut by the Oakland Raiders last week after he played just nine snaps in their loss to the San Francisco 49ers. In an interview with ESPN, Irvin revealed that the Falcons offer wasn't the only one on the table. In fact, Irvin told ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure that the Patriots and Steelers offered more money but he wanted to return to his hometown.

Offensively the team is clicking with Matt Ryan playing at an MVP level taking care of the football (19 TD's to 3 Int's) and making clutch throws. But the Falcons have won three in a row since then and still have the talent to get back in the wild-card race. The offense is already one of the league's top units. With the addition of Irvin, there's an entire new buzz and excitement generated by this Falcons team. I'm also a Georgia Tech graduate and love to follow the Yellow Jackets.
