Falcons Sign Former Vol Cordarrelle Patterson
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) – The Atlanta Falcons have signed safety Duron Harmon and four-time All-Pro return specialist Cordarrelle Patterson to one-year contracts. Harmon started all 16 games for Detroit in 2020 and set a career high with 73 tackles. Harmon addresses a glaring void on the Falcons’ depth chart after the team lost starting safeties Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal to free agency. Sharrod Neasman also is a free agent. Harmon has 19 interceptions and has started 45 games in eight NFL seasons, including seven with New England. Patterson earned first-team All-Pro honors as a kick returner in 2013, 2016 and 2019-20 with Minnesota and Chicago.
