The Atlanta Falcons have added depth at cornerback and a three-time Pro Bowl player on special teams by signing Justin Bethel Stefon Diggs Jersey Big , who played his first six seasons with Arizona.
The 27-year-old Bethel joins guard Brandon Fusco and tight end Logan Paulsen as Atlanta's top free-agent additions. The Falcons have focused on re-signing their own players while hoping to work out an extension for quarterback Matt Ryan, who can be a free agent after the 2018 season.
Bethel had a combined four interceptions the past three seasons with the Cardinals and returned three for touchdowns.
Bethel has avoided serious injuries with Arizona, playing in all 16 games in each of his six seasons.
