Falcons sign tight-end Luke Stocker

The Falcons announced their third free-agent signing of the offseason on Thursday, bringing in tight-end Luke Stocker on a two-year deal.

Stocker isn’t much of a threat in the receiving game. He only has 68 receptions for 577 yards over his eight-year career, but his effectiveness as a blocker is what has kept him in the league. Stocker spent last year with the Tennessee Titans, starting in 11 games. New tight-ends coach, Mike Mularkey, was with the Titans last year. Before that, Stocker played seven seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, where Dirk Koetter came from. That familiarity certainly played a role in the signing.

The move continues to signal the Falcons goal in rejuvenating their ground game that fell to 27th in the league last season.
