The Falcons on Wednesday announced the signing of offensive lineman Laurence Gibson.

Gibson was a seventh-round pick of the Cowboys in 2015. He was cut by the Cowboys after the preseason and spent 2015 on the practice squad with the Chiefs. The Chiefs cut Gibson last week.

Gibson was a two-year starter at Virginia Tech. He played both guard and left tackle early in his college career before establishing himself at left tackle as a senior. He’s listed at 6-foot-6, 315.
