Falcons sign Breon Borders

From Mr. Irrelevant-turned-starter-turned-injured to the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, Mike Florio and Chris Simms name which QBs have the highest bar to reach next season.

The Falcons made a change to their secondary on Monday.

The team announced the signing of cornerback Breon Borders to their 90-man roster. They waived cornerback Jamal Peters in a corresponding move.

Borders spent time on the Bears’ practice squad last year and appeared in one regular season game for the NFC North team. He split the 2021 season between the Cardinals and Titans and has also played for Washington, Jacksonville, and Buffalo since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017.

Borders has 42 tackles, an interception, seven passes defensed, and a fumble recovery in 32 career appearances.

Jeff Okudah, Mike Hughes, Tre Flowers, and fourth-round pick Clark Phillips are other new faces in a cornerback group that also includes A.J. Terrell and Darren Hall.
