The Atlanta Falcons have come to terms with free agent safety Erik Harris, Jason Butt reported on Twitter.
The Falcons waived Ricardo Allen and have let Keanu Neal and Damontae Kazee become free agents. The safety position was in desperate need of reinforcements (Falcons Frighteningly Thing at Safety).
Harris (30) has played four years with the Raiders and one with the New Orleans Saints. He started 26 games for the Raiders the last two seasons and had 74 and 61 tackles in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
The Raiders defense finished 25th last season, 26th against the pass.
The Falcons aren’t done at safety by a long shot and should be covering all bases when trying to solidify their defensive backfield. Here are three safeties they might be able to get in the draft.
