Falcons sign DE Irvin

Updated: 07-11-2018 20:38 IST

Defensive end Bruce Irvin landed on his feet and reunited with his former defensive coordinator one day after clearing waivers.

Irvin signed with the Atlanta Falcons, joining head coach Dan Quinn, who coordinated the Seahawks' defense when both were in Seattle.

Irvin cleared waivers and became an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday.

Irvin had $3.8 million left on his contract with the Oakland Raiders when he was waived.

The Seahawks drafted Irvin in the first round in 2012. The 31-year-old signed a $37 million deal as a free agent to leave Seattle and join the Raiders.

Atlanta's defense is beset by injuries, but the Falcons won at Washington last week to improve to 4-4.
