The Falcons plan to sign free agent outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Friday.
The Falcons probably see Upshaw, 26, as a key piece of a rebuilt defense. He made a free-agent visit to Atlanta earlier this week.
The Ravens drafted Upshaw in the second round in 2012. He has five sacks, seven pass breakups, four forced fumbles and 111 tackles in 51 career starts.
He also visited the Jets last week.
