FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons announced Friday that they have signed longsnapper Josh Harris to a three-year contract extension.
Harris, 29, is a Georgia native who has been with the Falcons since 2012, when he was signed as a college free agent. Harris has missed just one game during his career with the Falcons, this year's season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. During his seven years with the team, Harris has recorded seven tackles.
"It feels great," Harris said. "I love it here in Atlanta. I love this organization, the ownership, everybody here in the building. So to be able to stay here and play for a few more years, I mean it's incredible. Very thankful and blessed; my family and I, we're so glad to be here."
"He's been a model of consistency for us, and a guy who really lives to his standard," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said of Harris. "It's a position that you don't speak about a lot and that's a good thing. But the reason I [like him so much], man, does he really represent from the toughness and consistency [that he has] ... He's a pro's pro."
