Stephen Nicholas will return to Falcons

Divisional Playoffs - Green Bay Packers v Atlanta Falcons Getty Images

The Falcons entered this offseason facing big questions at linebacker.

They answered one on Wednesday morning after agreeing to a five-year deal with super sub linebacker Stephen Nicholas, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

There was a report Nicholas could head to the Giants, but it looks like New York may have been used for leverage. ┬áIt’s uncertain if Mike Peterson will be back with Atlanta; it’s also possible Nicholas’ role could increase in 2011.

    good re-signing – Nicholas may not be a star but he is a solid starting OLB in the NFL.

    I was really hoping the Giants were going to make a run at this young and talented player.

    Ok, good job, guys. Now… no more signings until we get Clabo, Dahl, and/or Blaylock. Keep Matty Ice upright!!!

    Nicholas is highly underrated. Good call keeping him around.
