Bruce Irvin signing with the Falcons

Bruce Irvin didnít stay unemployed for long.

Irvin, who passed through waivers after the Raiders cut him, is signing with the Falcons, the team announced this morning.

It was unsurprising that no team picked Irvin up on waivers, given that it would have required paying him $3.8 million the rest of the season. But itís also unsurprising that he was quickly signed once he became a free agent. The Falconsí struggling defense will benefit from Irvinís help as a pass rusher, even if theyíre paying him some amount less than $3.8 million.

The 31-year-old Irvin has three sacks so far this season. He had a career-high eight sacks last season.

Oh well ...

Guess in due time we'll add Irvin to the list of pass rushers who got the clamps put on em & shut down by that Saints monster O line in 2018.

Bring it.

3 of those were against the Buffalo Bills (per PFF), considered one of the worst O lines in all of football.

Had the Falcons claimed him off of waivers, they would've had to pick up his contract too. Since they didn't his contract is voided and they can, and probably did sign him for much less.
