The Falcons added another piece to the team’s defensive arsenal with the addition of a veteran tackle on Thursday afternoon.
Poe played in at least 15 games in each of his first five seasons with the Chiefs since being selected in the first round (11th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Memphis.
The Brotherhood just got a whole lot bigger!
We have agreed to terms with @PoeMans_dream.

Poe has 155 tackles and 13 sacks in his career, with six of those coming during the 2014 season alone. He had 27 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a forced fumble through 16 games in 2016.
A quick YouTube search reveals that Poe has a few offensive web gems under his belt as well, having lined up as a tight end for a short touchdown catch before, and he’s even thrown a TD pass.
