Dahl signs offer sheet with Falcons

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

The Falcons announced Thursday afternoon that guard Harvey Dahl has signed his restricted free-agent tender offer.

That's pretty much just a formality, unless you're talking about a franchise tender and Julius Peppers. Dahl will earn $1.5 million this season. The Falcons would have received a second-round draft choice had another team signed him.

The Falcons still have until July 15 to sign Dahl to a long-term contact.
