The Atlanta Falcons continue to re-stock their secondary defense, adding more veteran firepower to their already-improved unit.
According to Ian Rapoport, they just agreed to terms on a one-year deal with former Cincinnati Bengals star CB Tre Flowers.
The #Falcons signed veteran CB Tre Flowers, another experienced player in their secondary.

The team had already signed Mike Hughes to a two-year pact, later trading for Jeff Okudah and taking Clark Phillips III out of Utah in the fourth round of this year’s NFL Draft.
Flowers will provide more experience and depth to a unit that already featured Cornell Armstrong, A.J. Terrell, Darren Hall, and Dee Alford, with Casey Heyward being released.
Of course, Okudah and Terrell are expected to be the first in line, and there will be plenty of options to start at the slot.
The team struggled vastly with injuries last season, so they don’t want to be put in that same position in the following campaign.
Flowers comes with plenty of pedigree in this league.
He excelled with the Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals.
However, he’s an aging veteran and lost some ground as the years went by.
Notably, this signing was a long time coming, as they met a couple of months ago but were unable to strike a deal at that point.
Now, he’ll be reunited with former coach Steven Jackson and S Jessie Bates III, and the Falcons will most definitely be a much better defensive team in 2023.
The NFC South could be up for grabs for at least another season, and their fans hope this defensive unit can lead them back to the playoffs after a tough year in 2022.NEXT: The Falcons Suddenly Boast An Intriguing Young Core
