Atlanta has added some depth to its defensive line.

The Falcons announced on Wednesday that they’ve signed defensive tackle Eddie Goldman to a one-year deal.

The Bears released Goldman in March after seven years with the franchise. He appeared in 81 games with 73 starts, opting out of the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Returning to the team in 2021, Goldman played 14 games with 10 starts. He recorded a half-sack, 22 total tackles, and one tackle for loss.

Overall, he’s recorded 13.0 sacks, 18 tackles for loss, and 21 quarterback hits in his career.

Goldman is the second former Chicago player the Falcons have added at defensive line this offseason, having also signed Vincent Taylor in April.

  1. Honest question- is there anyone who recovered their career after opting out of 2020?

  2. Good player who needs a bounceback year if he’s going to be considered a top-level starter again. He’s still relatively young, so who knows. Pulling for my fellow Nole.

  3. Goldman got his money with the Bears and became instantly lazy and unmotivated.

  4. His work ethic disappeared after opting out. Maybe a 1 year deal this late into free agency is what he needs.
