In three seasons in a Falcons uniform (2006-2008), Milloy totaled 342 tackles (229 solo), two sacks, three interceptions and 15 passes defensed. Prior to joining Atlanta, he spent three years with the Buffalo Bills (2003-2005) and was a member of the New England Patriots from 1996-2002. In his 13-year career, Milloy has earned four Pro Bowl selections while winning a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2001.
"As an organization, we felt it was in the best interest of both parties to let Lawyer test the free agent market," said General Manager Thomas Dimitroff. "He significantly contributed in his three seasons with the Falcons and we were proud to have him here. We wish him the best as he takes the next step in his career."
