The Falcons continued adding players to their roster on Wednesday, including an offensive lineman with past experience playing for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

The team announced that they have signed tackle Tom Compton, who spent the last four seasons playing for the Redskins. Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Washington for the first two of those seasons.

Compton made 10 starts in his 44 appearances for the Redskins, who drafted him in the sixth round of the 2012 draft. He’ll likely be in the mix for a reserve role behind left tackle Jake Matthews and right tackle Ryan Schraeder.

The Falcons also announced that they have signed linebacker LaRoy Reynolds, who split last season between the Jaguars and the Bears. Reynolds entered the league as an undrafted free agent with Jacksonville in 2013 and played 30 games for them before being released and landing with the Bears for 13 games in 2015. He projects as a reserve inside linebacker with Paul Worrilow signing his restricted free agent tender with Atlanta.
