Veteran S Lawyer Milloy, a starter for the Falcons since 2006, won’t return to the team, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported:
- “We did meet in Indianapolis and at this point it’s in his best interest to explore other opportunities,” said Todd France, Milloy’s agent.
- Milloy started 48 of 49 games in three seasons with the Falcons. He helped provide leadership to a young secondary last season.
- “We felt as an organization that it was in the best interests of both parties to go in our own directions and let him test the market in free agency,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said Sunday. “We feel that Lawyer has been a significant contributor to the Falcons organization both on and off the field. We are very proud to have had him involved here. We wish him all of the best in his future career in football and life outside of football.”
Milloy, 35, also has played for the New England Patriots (1996-2002) and Buffalo Bills (2003-2005).
