The Falcons are bringing in a young defender to help their pass rush.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Atlanta is signing edge rusher Lorenzo Carter to a one-year contract.

Carter, 26, spent his first four seasons with the Giants. NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo reports that New York made a push to bring him back. But the Falcons were able to land Carter over the weekend.

A third-round pick in the 2018 draft, Carter appeared in 49 games with 33 starts for the Saints. He recorded a career-high 5.0 sacks in 2021 while also making six tackles for loss, an interception, five passes defensed, and a pair of forced fumbles.
