The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday that they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with center Todd McClure.
McClure has been with Atlanta since 1999 and is the longest current tenured Falcon. He missed three games with a knee injury in 2011, but previously had made a club-record 144 straight starts.
McClure will return as a starter in 2012, though the Falcons soon must begin thinking about a replacement.
McClure turned 35 in February.
