Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann tweeted today that he will be staying with the Falcons, presumably because he has agreed to terms to a new deal, a deal that was reported as imminent by D. Orlando Ledbetter last week. No official word has come from the Falcons.
Ledbetter reported that Biermann would sign a three or four-year contract worth $10-12 million. Biermann is set to become a free agent next Tuesday on March 13. Biermann was a fifth round pick for the Falcons in 2008, and started 14 games in 2010. In four years with the Falcons, Biermann has tallied 12.5 sacks and 106 tackles with 17 games started.
UPDATE: Ledbetter reports that Biermann signed a three-year deal. Exact terms are undisclosed. NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that the team is worth roughly $9 million, with a maximum value of $12 million.
