The Falcons have made another depth signing, adding the former UCLA Bruin Fabian Moreau.
The #Falcons have agreed to terms with former Washington CB Fabian Moreau on a one-year deal, per source.

Moreau was originally a third-round pick, and he has been a decent contributor to the Washington Football Team since 2017. There is the obvious connection to new VP of Player Personnel Kyle Smith, who served as a scout in Washington for 11 seasons. Moreau ran an impressive 4.35 during the 2017 NFL Draft Combine and has served mostly as a boundary corner. I could see him as a nickel in Atlanta, but he hasn’t impressed there thus far. Over 18 career starts, the 26-year-old has six career interceptions to go along with three forced fumbles and 14 passes defended. He is a solid pickup for the price, immediately filling a massive void on the Atlanta defense. Moreau never got a chance on a talented defense in Washington, so he could easily be a steal. Up to this point, Moreau has been a rotational piece, but he may get his shot as a full-time starter with the Falcons in 2021.
