Falcons: Josh Andrews agrees to a one-year deal

As expected, the Falcons have signed some cheap depth on the offensive front, as they have with multiple positions this offseason.

The former Oregon State Beaver came into the NFL in 2014 as an UDFA with the Philadelphia Eagles. He bounced back and forth between Philly’s practice squad and active roster until the end of the 2017 season, and he signed with the Colts’ practice squad in 2018. Andrews then went back and forth from Doug Pederson and Frank Reich twice before landing with the Jets in 2020. Originally signed to the practice squad, he started four games in New York — with three coming at right guard. Andrews allowed two sacks in 188 dropbacks and drew one penalty in 311 overall snaps.

The 29-year-old is a pretty good athlete with top tier size, but he hasn’t made his mark in the NFL quite yet. He does have flexibility at center, which is nice, but he has produced mixed results thus far. Injuries have slowed him down, but I expect Andrews will at least get a chance to compete for the left guard spot. His ability to move in space should play well in Arthur Smith’s scheme.
