FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday that they have signed Atlanta native Afolabi Laguda to a two-year contract.
Laguda, 24, was a safety with the Los Angeles Rams as a rookie prior to the 2018 season, but he was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury following the preseason and was later waived.
Before joining the NFL, Laguda played for three seasons at Colorado University. Laguda left Colorado after recording 150 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, eight pass defenses, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
The Falcons also signed safety Chris Cooper on Friday, giving them two new players at a position where depth was seriously tested in 2018.
