The AJC reports that the Falcons are very close to signing free agent passer Byron Leftwich, with an agreement coming as early as tonight.
Leftwich had a physical this morning, after meeting with Falcon officials last night, including owner Arthur Blank.
Leftwich, 27, is expected to provide insurance in case Joey Harrington continues to struggle.
UPDATE: NFL.com is reporting that the Falcons have agreed to terms with Leftwich on a two-year contract. Terms of his deal were undisclosed.
