Breaking news from Aaron Wilson and The Oracle himself:
falcons signing linebacker pat angerer today according to a source— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) July 22, 2014
GM Thomas Dimitroff said the team would continue to look at adding LB. Now added two vets in Dobbins and Angerer prior to camp on Friday.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) July 22, 2014
Falcons signed WR Jeremy Ebert also after he worked out for the team today. Last with Jacksonville.,— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) July 22, 2014
Angerer is just 27 years old, so there is potential to get a couple of good years out of him. With Spoon gone, veteran LB depth was certainly a concern. Angerer was a name that was floated around here as a preference to be signed. Looks like Dimitroff was reading us. Right? Right?!
Angerer spent four years with the Colts, amassing 2.5 sacks, 184 tackles, 133 assists, and 2 interceptions. He's had injury problems in the past couple of seasons, though he did play in all 16 games his first two years in the league. He probably won't be a superstar, but he's a potential Mike Peterson/Stephen Nicholas-type player.
Ebert is probably just a camp body, or so I'd say.
