Cut loose by Jacksonville, quarterback Byron Leftwich has found a new home with the Atlanta Falcons.
According to his agent, the former first-round draft pick passed a physical today and signed a two-year, 7 million-dollar contract.
The Falcons need help at the quarterback position as Joey Harrington has lost his first two starts after replacing the suspended Michael Vick. Atlanta's offense has scored a total of ten points in those two games.
Leftwich was picked seventh overall by Jacksonville in 2003. He's been hampered by ankle and knee injuries and has missed 15 games the past two years.
The Falcons have not immediately confirmed the signing of Leftwich or announced a roster move to clear a spot for the new quarterback.
