The Los Angeles Rams released linebacker Clay Matthews in March along with running back Todd Gurley. Atlanta was quick to sign Gurley and a handful of other former first-round picks, but haven’t budged on Matthews.

Most recently, the Falcons signed Deone Buccanon with hopes to improve their pass-rush, and adding another veteran doesn’t sound too shabby.

Matthews is mainly an outside linebacker but has experience inside as well and has proven to be very versatile in his role on defense, the Falcons love a hybrid player.
