Source: Falcons further bolster defense with Calais Campbell

The Atlanta Falcons will be signing defensive end Calais Campbell to a one-year deal, a source confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday, the latest move by the franchise to upgrade its defense.

After Atlanta's season ended, Falcons coach Arthur Smith said the franchise needed to look to make additions to its defensive front. It already made a change in coordinator this offseason, going from Dean Pees, who retired, to Ryan Nielsen. And the franchise added safety Jessie Bates III, defensive tackle David Onyemata and linebacker Kaden Elliss in the first days of free agency.
