Falcons agree to terms with Steven Means on one-year extension


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons announced Wednesday that they've agreed to terms on a one-year extension with defensive end Steven Means.


The Falcons signed Means, 28, early in the season after he was released by the Philadelphia Eagles. Means played in eight games for Atlanta during the 2018 season and made four starts. He finished the year with 14 tackles, three tackles for a loss and one sack.

Means was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3, 263-pound defensive end was released by the Buccaneers early in his second NFL season and subsequently signed with the Baltimore Ravens. In 2016, Means signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he played for two seasons prior to arriving in Atlanta.

During his five-year career, Means has recorded 26 tackles, five tackles for a loss, three sacks and one forced fumble.

With free agency just around the corner, here are the players who have agreed to new deals with the team this offseason.
