The Atlanta Falcons made a couple of moves on Tuesday, signing veteran linebacker Thomas Howard and releasing linebacker Jamar Chaney.

He was selected in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. He spent the first five years of his career in Oakland before signing with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2011. He played one full season with the Bengals before missing all of last season with a knee injury.

For his career, Howard has compiled 492 tackles, six sacks, seven interceptions, and six forced fumbles.
