Former Raiders Star Bruce Irvin Signs With Falcons

Former Raiders Star Bruce Irvin Signs With Falcons”

Irvin will bring veteran leadership and know-how to a young defense that features talented players such as Takkarist McKinley, Vic Beasley, and Duke Riley. I know he's frustrated. The Seahawks were thought to be a consideration for Irvin because he played four years for the Seahawks, who chose him in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Oakland was expected to enter the season with Irvin and Khalil Mack leading the defense as bookend pass rushers. Those were the seasons Seattle went to consecutive Super Bowls, with Irvin winning a championship with the Seahawks in January 2014. He signed a one-year deal with the Falcons on Wednesday, and while financial terms were not released, he is still owed $3.8 million from Oakland for the remainder of the season. Linebacker Deion Jones, who has been on injured reserve since suffering a foot injury in the season-opening loss at Philadelphia, returned to practice. He added, "He will add to our rotation along the defensive line, while adding to our pass rush". The seventh-year defender has recorded 40 sacks and 15 forced fumbles during his career, and he joins a Falcons defense that has just 17 sacks this season, tied for 27th among all National Football League teams.

Quinn said Jones' snaps in practice will be watched closely this week. "I think for both sides, for our team and for him, it was the right fit at the right time and it just aligned at the right time for us".

The Falcons hope Irvin adds new punch to the pass rush.

Since he was born and raised in Atlanta, the decision was an easy one. That's a lot of firepower.

Irvin should presumably help.

It didn't take long for Bruce Irvin to find a new home.
