Atlanta Falcons restricted free agent Tyson Clabo officially signed his restricted free agent tender, the team announced today.
Clabo (6-6, 332) is entering his 4th season with the Falcons. He's started 37 games for Atlanta, including 27 straight, since being signed as a street free agent in 2005. Clabo entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2004 with the Denver Broncos.
By signing the tender, Clabo is guaranteed a one-year salary of $1.545 million dollars.
In an unrelated move, the Falcons released rookie linebacker Brock Christopher. The 6-2, 235-pound former University of Missouri star was signed as undrafted free agent on April 27.
