FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with defensive end Adrian Clayborn.
In 2018, the nine-year veteran played for the New England Patriots, seeing action in 14 regular season games and three postseason games on the way to winning Super Bowl LIII. Clayborn totaled 11 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in the regular and postseason.

Prior to the Patriots, the Iowa alum spent three seasons with the Falcons and saw action in 45 games with 58 tackles (50 solo), 13.0 sacks, four fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles, and two passes defensed.

In 2016, Clayborn set a Falcons single-game franchise record with six sacks against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.
Clayborn, 6-3, 280 pounds, was originally selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round (20th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. He started in 36 games during his four years with the Bucs, tallying 109 total tackles (74 solo), 13 sacks, five forced fumbles, and two passes defensed.
