Falcons hang onto Courtney Upshaw

The Falcons have bigger deals to do in the coming hours, but they filled in a blank with a versatile player.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Falcons have agreed to terms to bring back linebacker/defensive end Courtney Upshaw.

The former Ravens second-rounder played a number of roles for the Falcons last year, and he’s good against the run.

They have more deals to do, and are working on a big extension for cornerback Marcus Trufant, as they try to keepĀ a young defense together.

    Maybe he really meant Marcus. Perhaps they’re trying to keep up with their NFC South brethren Panthers and are bringing in a brother tandem. Marcus is a lot older, and long-retired, but otherwise not that much less effective than Matt Kalil has been.
