Atlanta, which went from 4-12 in 2007 to 11-5 last season, also re-signed defensive tackle Jason Jefferson, offensive lineman Ben Wilkerson, linebacker Tony Gilbert and safety Jamaal Fudge. In addition, the Falcons inked exclusive rights contracts with running back Jason Snelling, cornerback Brent Grimes and safety Antoine Harris.
"All of these guys are hard working, focused players who understand their roles," general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. "They fit into our system and what we are trying to accomplish as a team."
