The Falcons added some experience to their secondary, announcing that they’ve agreed to a deal with safety Chris Hope.

The 10-year veteran has 109 starts with Pittsburgh and Tennessee, and should provide some insurance and could even push for starts at strong safety.

Originally a third-round pick, Hope won a Super Bowl with the Steelers in 2005, and earned a Pro Bowl berth in 2008 with the Titans. He’s picked off 20 passes.

The Falcons have made improving their secondary a priority this offseason, trading for cornerback Asante Samuel, franchising cornerback Brent Grimes and locking up free safety Thomas DeCoud with an extension.
