FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – After making a visit to Atlanta earlier this week, the Falcons have agreed to terms with cornerback and three-time Pro Bowler on special teams, Justin Bethel.
Bethel, 27, became a Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro with the Arizona Cardinals; he would be a quality depth piece for the Falcons' secondary, but his biggest impact could come on special teams, where he is considered one of the top players in the NFL.
Thus far in free agency, the Falcons have addressed a number of positions. The first outside acquisition the team made was signing former 49ers offensive lineman Brandon Fusco. They also acquired veteran tight end and also re-signed defensive end . Outside of those signings, the Falcons have focused on re-signing their own players and keeping some of the pieces together from their back-to-back trips to the postseason.
