DE Kroy Biermann and the Falcons Are Close to an Extension

The Falcons and defensive end Kroy Biermann are close on a contract extension, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

According to Ledbetter, a deal could be announced “within the next 36 hours”.

A 2008 fifth round pick out of Montana in 2008, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Biermann has 143 tackles, 12.5 sacks and two interceptions, both of which he’s returned for touchdowns, during his 64-game career. Of Biermann’s 143 tackles, 37 have come on special teams.

Biermann has started 17 games for the Falcons, including a career-high 14 opposite John Abraham during the 2010 season. With last year’s signing of Ray Edwards, Biermann returned to a reserve role, picking up 2.5 sacks and an interception while earning an escalated base salary of $1.2 million in the final year of his four-year, $1.879 million rookie contract.
