Falcons re-sign Redman and Douglas


The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday night that they have re-signed backup quarterback Chris Redman, and wide receiver Harry Douglas.

FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez reports that Redman’s deal is for one year, while Douglas’ is good for four seasons.

Redman is going on age 35, but has a firm grasp on the Atlanta offense. The Falcons aren’t ready to turn clipboard-toting duties over to John Parker Wilson just yet.

Douglas is 27. Though he’s flashed impressive run-after-skills in the preseason, Douglas has made a minimal impact in real games. Usually used as the Falcons’ slot receiver, Douglas has yet to post 40 receptions in a season. He still figures to return as Atlanta’s No. 3 wideout behind Julio Jones and Roddy White.

Neither of the above players cracked PFT’s Hot 100.
