The Atlanta Falcons have bolstered their defensive front, signing veteran nose tackle Eddie Goldman to a one-year deal on Wednesday, NFL insider Jordan Schultz reported.

Goldman, 28, has spent his entire career with the Chicago Bears after being selected in the second round back in 2015. In 2021, he started 14 games, racking up 22 tackles (14 solo) and 0.5 sacks.

The Falcons released veteran Tyeler Davison, which means Goldman should be in the mix for the starting nose tackle job along with Anthony Rush and Vincent Taylor.
