The Falcons have locked up their long snapper for years to come. On Friday, Josh Harris signed a three-year extension that will keep him in Atlanta through the 2021 season.
Harris joined the Falcons in 2012 and has been the club’s featured long snapper in every game since except for one. The Georgia native also has seven special teams tackles to his credit.
Harris wasn’t at the top of the team’s offseason to-do list and there are several pending free agents left to be addressed. That group includes running back Tevin Coleman, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, left guard Andy Levitre, backup quarterback Matt Schaub, defensive end Derrick Shelby, and defensive tackle Terrell McClain.
