Falcons sign free-agent linebacker Huff

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (June 23, 2007) -- The Atlanta Falcons signed free-agent linebacker Orlando Huff to provide depth at outside linebacker and play on special teams.

The 6-foot-3, 263-pound Huff started 13 games for the Arizona Cardinals in 2006, making 79 tackles. The six-year veteran has three sacks and two interceptions in 48 career starts with the Cardinals and Seattle.

Huff also gives Atlanta an experienced option at weakside linebacker as Demorrio Williams recovers from offseason surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle.

The Falcons also signed former Georgia Tech tight end George Cooper, who was released by Detroit after being signed as an undrafted rookie free agent.
