The Falcons have added some experience at cornerback.
According to Chick Hernandez of Comcast SportsNet, Redskins corner Josh Wilson has reached a one-year deal with Atlanta.
The 29-year-old Wilson has started every game in the last three seasons for Washington. He recorded a career-best 93 tackles in 2013.
Wilson, who’s intercepted 14 passes and made 81 starts in seven NFL seasons, joins an Atlanta secondary with second-year cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford in key roles. The Falcons also have Robert McClain and Javier Arenas at corner.
Before joining Washington in 2011, the 5-foot-9, 188-pound Wilson played for Seattle (2007-2009) and Baltimore (2010). He was Seattle’s second-round pick in 2007.
