Bruce Irvin Turns Down More Money From Patriots To Sign With Falcons

Bruce Irvin Turns Down More Money From Patriots To Sign With Falcons

The Raiders, meanwhile, parted ways with Irvin because he didn't fit their defensive scheme and was their highest paid player on that side of the ball.

According to Over the Cap, Atlanta only had about $3.49 million in cap room prior to Irvin signing, so we'll see.

Veteran defensive end Bruce Irvin wasn't a free agent for long. On Wednesday, Irvin made a decision to take his talents to the Atlanta Falcons.

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

The acquisition of Irvin makes ideal sense for the Falcons. The one-year deal reunites Irvin with coach Dan Quinn.

He then played at West Virginia and went No. 12 overall in the 2012 draft to Seattle. He knows what it takes to reach the Super Bowl and win it, and he wants to help the Falcons in any way he can. They have a familiarity with and respect for each other.

The Atlanta Falcons are very much in the playoff hunt even after a miserable 1-4 start.

The Falcons have endured numerous injuries this year. Maybe the addition of Irvin will spark more production out of Beasley. But it will mean a lot more than that.

"Yesterday it hit me a little bit", Irvin said during his introductory press conference Thursday.

Irvin, 31, is an Atlanta native. In an interview with ESPN, Irvin revealed that the Falcons offer wasn't the only one on the table.

He told ESPN: "This was a dream [come] true".

The Falcons are a team that struggled during the first quarter of the season.

Offensively the team is clicking with Matt Ryan playing at an MVP level taking care of the football (19 TD's to 3 Int's) and making clutch throws.

They are now the seventh seed in the NFC and are only one game behind a wild-card spot. "I'm just very fortunate to be an Atlanta Falcon right now".
