  • Bruce Irvin says Patriots offered more money but he chose Falcons

Irvin was released by the Raiders last week as the team is going through a complete overhaul.

And his home is Atlanta, not Seattle.

The former Raider and Seahawk told ESPN he passed on greater money from New England and Pittsburgh to sign with the Falcons, his hometown team, on Wednesday.

The Seahawks offered Irvin's father figure, defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr.

With $3.8 million left on his contract, the defensive lineman cleared waivers on Tuesday and was a free agent. It's no surprise he worked his way East upon his release, as he has a strong connection with Falcons coach Dan Quinn, who served as defensive coordinator for the Seahawks from 2013-14 before arriving in Atlanta. Those were the seasons Seattle went to consecutive Super Bowls, with Irvin winning a championship with the Seahawks in January 2014. If it was he'd have signed with the Patriots.

The Falcons (4-4) are slated to visit the Browns (2-6-1) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora identified the Falcons - along with the Patriots and Seahawks - as a likely landing spot.
