Falcon agree to terms with Luke Stocker

By AccessWDUN Staff

FLOWERY BRANCH – The Falcons have agreed to terms with tight end Luke Stocker on a two-year contract. 

Stocker was originally drafted in the fourth round (104th overall) by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2011 NFL Draft. The six-foot-five tight end spent seven seasons with the Buccaneers, appearing in 80 games with 56 starts. He totaled 52 receptions for 400 yards and three touchdowns. He was signed by the Titans late in the 2017 season.

Stocker adds competition and depth to the tight end position and is known for his blocking in the run game. Last season, the University of Tennessee alum played in all 16 games with 11 starts and tied a career-best with 165 receiving yards on 15 receptions and a career-high two touchdown catches.

The nine-year veteran has appeared in 99 NFL games, including 69 starts, catching 68 passes for 577 yards and five receiving touchdowns.
