The Falcons signed Dobbins to help replace the injured Sean Weatherspoon this offseason, but he did not make the final cut in late August. Since then, he has auditioned for the Raiders and Pats but didn’t find an NFL home until today. Over parts of eight seasons with the Chargers, Dolphins, and Texans, Dobbins has appeared in 110 games and made 22 starts. He has 195 total tackles to his credit with two sacks and seven fumble recoveries. Four of those fumble recoveries came during an especially fortuitous 2012 season.
Durant, who was starting at weakside linebacker, suffered a season-ending biceps tear earlier this week.
