Irvin is also going home with this move, as he was born in Atlanta, Georgia.

Irvin is officially headed to Atlanta for a reunion with head coach Dan Quinn, his old defensive coordinator from back in his Seahawks days.

Signing Bruce Irvin improves Atlanta's ever-increasing playoff hopes helping fix the weakness of their team.

The Oakland Raiders released Irvin last weekend, and he spent little time deciding where he'd go next. He was a centerpiece of the ferocious Seahawks' defense prior to that, and he has been a durable and productive player even on the wrong side of age 30.

Along with the signing of Bruce Irvin came the news that middle linebacker Deion Jones will be returning in two weeks. In fact, McKinley tweeted to Irvin "let's eat", implying the meal starts on Sunday against rookie Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns (1 p.m. ET, Fox).

According to the SAFAR, the moisture in the air on Wednesday was normal, thus reducing the pollution load slightly. The overall AQI of the city was 11 times the permissible limit.

"Yesterday it hit me a little bit", Irvin said during his introductory press conference Thursday.

Vaughn McClure at ESPN reports that Irvin says both the Patriots and Steelers offered him more money, but he wanted to play for the Falcons. Quinn is in his third year as Atlanta's head coach.

What does this mean for Irvin and the Falcons moving forward?

Maximizing his chances to win a second ring wasn't the primary motivation for Irvin this week. "He will add to our rotation along the defensive line, while adding to our pass rush".

While defensive end isn't a major need, the Patriots are always looking to improve and Irvin certainly would have helped.
