Bruce Irvin Wants to Play in Atlanta


“I’m going to be in Atlanta next season. I’m ready,” said Irvin in response to my question about where he wants to be after his contract his up.

Irvin, who is from Atlanta, was informed by the Seahawks before the draft that they will not pick up the 5th year option on his rookie deal. Also, former Seahawks’ defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is now the head coach of the Falcons, so it makes sense. Irvin to the Falcons has been a rumor more than once this offseason and the Seahawks reportedly are still trying to work out a trade for him.

I asked Irvin if the Seahawks “showed him the money”, would he stay and he said:

“Atlanta is where I want to be. Believe that,” said Irvin.
