Falcons Sign WR Moore and LB Tovell

The Falcons have signed wide receiver Lance Moore and linebacker Dominique Tovell. The team has also waived wide receiver Chris King. These moves bring the roster back to 90 men.

After recording 2,000-plus yards and 25 touchdowns for the University of Toledo, Moore was signed by the Cleveland Browns as a college free agent following the 2005 NFL Draft. Moore is entering his 10th year in the NFL and has played for three different teams. He spent eight years with the Falcons divisional rival, the New Orleans Saints, recording 346 receptions for 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns. Moore has 389 career receptions for 4,816 yards and 44 touchdowns.

Tovell spent his four years battling for the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns (2012-15) and was signed by the Saints as a college free agent following this year's draft. Tovell recorded 238 total tackles in 50 games during his college career.

King was recently signed by the Falcons. He was a first-team All-NEC selection as a senior in 2015 when he led Duquesne with 81 receptions for 1,136 yards (14.0 avg.) and eight touchdowns.
