New Falcons head coach Dan Quinn is already bringing players with him from Seattle to Atlanta.
The Falcons have signed former Seahawks linebacker Allen Bradford.
Bradford was the only player that had been on the Seahawks practice squad or practice squad injured reserve list not signed to a future contract following the Super Bowl. Bradford was active for just one game for Seattle last season while splitting time between the active roster and the practice squad.
Bradford had spent time with the Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns in 2014.
Atlanta’s defense ranked last in the league. Bradford can play middle linebacker and is a competent special teams player.
Bradford may not be the only one to follow Quinn to Atlanta. Byron Maxwell and Malcolm Smith are among defensive free agents from Seattle that likely won’t be able to retained by the Seahawks. Either one could become targets of the Falcons as well.
