The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with safety Ricardo Allen on a three-year, $19.5M contract extension that will keep Allen in Atlanta through the 2021 season, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Allen has played in 46 games, including 45 starts during his tenure with the Falcons, and has made it clear that he wants to sign long-term with Atlanta, who retained him this offseason by assigning the $2.914M restricted free agent tender to him.
Falcons Activate Deion Jones
The Atlanta Falcons will be getting some needed help on the defensive side of the ball, as they have officially activated linebacker Deion Jones off of the injured reserve, according to Sirius XM’s Adam Caplan.
In a corresponding move, the Falcons waived offensive lineman Rees Odhiambo to clear a roster spot for a returning Jones.
Jones suffered a foot injury back in Week 1 and has been recovering ever since. After the Cleveland Browns lit up the Falcons’ defense this past week, seeing Jones back on the field will be a welcome site for Atlanta.
Falcons Sign Zane Beadles
Beadles, 31, was released from San Francisco back in May. Beadles his starting job to Laken Tomlinson before last season and had been on a downward slide since then, failing to return to the form that helped him land a big free agent deal a few years back with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Falcons To Sign Austin Pasztor
The Atlanta Falcons will bolster their offensive line depth with the addition of offensive tackle Austin Pasztor who is inking a one-year deal with the club, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Pasztor, 28, returns to the Falcons, whom he played for during the 2017 regular season, and spent the offseason with Atlanta before being cut prior to the preseason, so his familiarity with the offensive will be welcomed.
