The Falcons announced that they have re-signed free agent quarterback Chris Redman. Falcons wideout Harry Douglas tweeted that he will be staying in Atlanta, indicating that he has come to terms with a deal to keep him a Falcon. An official announcement came shortly thereafter. Per Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, Redman signed a one-year deal, and Douglas a four-year deal.
The free agent signing period began today at 4 pm eastern, and the Falcons have to make any moves. Redman joined the Falcons in 2007. He has made 6 starts since then as injury replacements. He played in 5 games this past year, where he completed 18 of 28 passes for 188 yards and an interception.
Douglas was a third round pick by the Falcons in 2008. He missed all of the 2009 season with a torn ACL. He is coming off a season where he set career highs with 39 catches, 498 yards, and 1 touchdown.
