FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday morning that they have agreed to terms with tight end Luke Stocker on a two-year deal. Stocker adds competition and depth to the tight end position and is known for his blocking in the run game.
Stocker has 58 receptions for 577 yards and five touchdowns in his nine-year career. A fourth-round draft pick out of Tennessee in the 2011 draft, the 6-foot-5, 253-pound Stocker has played the last two seasons with the Tennessee Titans after beginning his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2011-2017). Current Falcons tight end coach Mike Mularkey coached the Titans from 2016-2017.
The Falcons currently have six tight ends on their roster. Stocker joins Austin Hooper, Eric Saubert, Alex Gray, Jaeden Graham and the newly-signed Logan Paulsen in that group.
On Monday, the Falcons agreed to terms with two guards, James Carpenter and Jamon Brown.
