He will get a one-piece bargain, ” a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Irvin brought a little of an edge and attitude to the lockerroom after registering up a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Falcons last November after his discharge by the Raiders. The deal brought Irvin back to his roots in Atlanta, plus in addition, it reunited him with coach Dan Quinn, his defensive coordinator with the Seahawks.
In eight games with Atlanta, the 31-year-old Irvin listed 3.5 sacks and 1-3 combined tackles while playing 208 defensive snaps. Most of his sacks came in a three-game stretch against Green Bay, Arizona, also Carolina.
For his career, Irvin has 43.5 sacks and 15 forced fumbles. He recorded eight sacks in a single season: as a rookie with the Seahawks in 2012 and with the Raiders in 2017.
