Redman staying with Falcons

RedmanRedmanESPN's John Clayton is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons and Chris Redman have agreed to a new contract, which prevents him from becoming an unrestricted free agent.

It’s a two-year deal worth more than $5 million and it makes sense on every level. Redman was decent when playing for an injured Matt Ryan last year. He knows Atlanta’s offense well. He also gets along very well with Ryan and provides another set of eyes and ears for him.

The Falcons also have John Parker Wilson, who they think can develop into a quality backup. But he’s still a project at this point and Redman gives them a quality backup.
