Falcons have agreed to terms with with one of the NFL best corners Desmond Trufant. The Atlanta Falcons and the 2015 Pro Bowl corner agreed on a five year 69 million 42 guaranteed extension on Saturday April 8th via Jordan Schultz of the Huffington Post.
Trufant suffered a pectoral injury in November 2016 causing him to miss the Falcons Superbowl run. Trufant contract puts him in elite company. Redskins Josh Norman 5 year 70 million 50 guaranteed. Patrick Peterson 5 year 70 million 48 guaranteed.
Teammate Robert Alford signed a 4 year 38 million 21 guaranteed in December.
Trufant is known for having one side of the field locked down. Quarterbacks don’t often throw his way. With him back in action Falcons have one of the most intriguing talented secondaries in the league. Robert Alford had an impressive Superbowl moment picking off Tom Brady that resulted in a touchdown. Jalen Collins has made tremendous strides from his rookie season. Keanu Neal who is a intimidating presence in the middle of the Falcons defense.
With Trufant back in action for years to come… They might just have the best secondary in the NFL.
