Falcons Sign Former Raiders DE Bruce Irvin

New Falcons DE Bruce Irvin says Patriots offered more money

The Atlanta Falcons beefed up their defensive line earlier this week with the acquisition of former Oakland Raiders defensive end Bruce Irvin short after he was released by the team.

Veteran pass-rusher Bruce Irvin wanted to come home to Atlanta all along.

Atlanta-born Irvin, 31, was selected by the Seahawks with the number 15 overall pick of the 2012 draft.

And his home is Atlanta, not Seattle. Irvin has plenty to offer that could prove to beneficial this season but also may put him in play to be a long-term fixture with the franchise well beyond the 2018 campaign. He was a centerpiece of the ferocious Seahawks' defense prior to that, and he has been a durable and productive player even on the wrong side of age 30.

He also posted a photo of his niece on Instagram . "My gut is saying she's inside the bar, dead ", he told the Times . Tamera responded to the student's tweet , asking for more information. " Can you please DM me your information? ".

What does this mean for Irvin and the Falcons moving forward? A Super Bowl champ, he played under Falcons coach Dan Quinn in Seattle when Quinn was the Seahawks' defensive coordinator.

The Falcons plan to play Irvin, who was released by the Raiders this past Saturday, in this Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Irvin, who is an outside linebacker is also an effective pass rusher.

Irvin said that he could have been paid more money by going to Pittsburgh or by New England when he spoke to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com.

Maximizing his chances to win a second ring wasn't the primary motivation for Irvin this week. Quinn knows how to use Irvin, putting him in the best positions to succeed and improve an Atlanta pass rush with some questions. Keep an eye out for my articles covering the Falcons, Yellowjackets and other collegiate and professional teams.
