Falcons Ink Veteran Free Agent DT Terrell McClain

Free agent defensive tackle Terrell McClain has a new home, as the veteran has inked a deal with the Falcons.

The Falcons on Friday signed McClain to a contract, the team announced. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 6-foot-2, 302-pound McClain will provide depth and experience along the interior of Atlanta’s defensive line. He joins Grady Jarrett, rookie Deadrin Senat and Garrison Smith, among other defensive tackles currently on the Falcons’ roster.

McClain previously signed a four-year, $21 million contract with the Redskins in 2017, but Washington released him on April 30 after using a first-round pick on defensive tackle Daron Payne.

McClain’s production the past season likely didn’t help his cause in Washington, as he appeared in 12 games with two starts and totaled 20 tackles (17 solo) and two sacks.

The 29-year-old McClain entered the league in 2011 out of South Florida as a third-round pick with the Carolina Panthers. In addition to spending with Washington last year, he had stints with the Patriots (2012), Texans (2012-13) and Cowboys (2014-16).
