Former Raider’s sack artist Bruce Irvin has signed with the Atlanta Falcons.
The Rap Sheets Ian Rapoport is reporting the Atlanta Falcons moved quickly with Irvin getting a $3.2 million, prorated 1-year contract. He will also get his Raiders’ money in a classic double-dip the NFL hates and the NFLPA loves.
The #Falcons are paying pass-rusher Bruce Irvin $3.2M prorated on a 1-year deal, source said. He’ll make $1.5M over 8 games, indicative of how strong his market was. He double-dips from the #Raiders. OAK pays the $3.8M left ($8.25M total), add in ATL’s $1.5M = $9.75M for 2018.

The Falcons have played themselves first out, and now back in contention. They just gave their defense a much needed shot in the arm.
