FLOWERY BRANCH – The Atlanta Falcons have signed the defensive end of Bruce Irvin for a one-year contract announced on Wednesday, unifying him with Senior Coach Dan Quinn.
Irvin, who took over from Oakland Raiders this Saturday, became a free agent after Tuesday's resignation from the remaining $ 3.8 million in the contract. Falcons, who faced Cleveland Browns on Sunday, did not find the details of the operation.
Irvin, 31, was born in Atlanta. He celebrated his return home by posting on his Twitter account "Man, it's time! You can not put a price on the opportunity to play for my people and my city! That's bigger than money!"
Irvin played two seasons for Seattle Seahawks when Quinn was the defender of the team.
