Falcons, Douglas agree to extension
Two offensive players are returning to the Atlanta Falcons.
A source told FOXSports.com that wide receiver Harry Douglas had agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension. Financial details weren’t immediately available.
Backup quarterback Chris Redman also signed a one-year deal, a source said. Financial details weren’t immediately available.
As a third-round pick in 2008, Douglas was selected in the same draft class as quarterback Matt Ryan. Douglas missed the 2009 season with a knee injury but has played in every Falcons game the past two seasons.
Redman has served as Atlanta’s backup passer since the Falcons drafted Ryan with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2007 draft. Redman, 34, appeared in five games last season, completing 18 of 28 passes for 188 yards with one interception.
