Dontari Poe gets 1-year deal with Falcons — NFL free agency


Poe, 26, was originally a first round pick for the Chiefs back in 2012.

Logan, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles, signed a one-year contract worth $8 million with the Chiefs.

After making a run at free agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe, the Jaguars missed out, with Poe instead choosing to sign with the Atlanta Falcons. Poe is getting $8 million from the Falcons.

That well could be the case. Poe may have declined or told the Chiefs to hold on while he looked for a better deal.

Chiefs fans don't wish any ill will towards Poe. "We are happy to be able to add him to our roster". Pioli is an executive in the Falcons front office alongside Thomas Dimitroff, the team's general manager. "I liked him [when he visited]". For as much coverage Poe used to see in Kansas City, the Falcons offer more pressure from the defensive line, limiting the amount of double teams that could be focused on Poe. He started 76 games and recorded 13 sacks over five seasons, while claiming Pro Bowl spots in 2013 and 2014. This is a good, short-term deal for both Atlanta and Poe.

Carr, a 10-year National Football League veteran who turns 31 in May, is coming off his best season, when he had one interception, nine pass deflections, a quarterback pressure, a tackle for loss and 61 tackles for the Dallas Cowboys. He had back surgery two years ago and hasn't been the same player since. This category includes offensive tackle Branden Albert and cornerback Sean Smith. In short, Dorsey wanted Logan more than Poe going forward.
