Reed (groin) took part in Tuesday's non-contact practice, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Reed has reached an agreement to join the Falcons, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports.

A second-round pick in the 2011 draft, Reed has experience playing both inside and outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, with the former being more useful in the majority of IDP formats. It's not entirely clear how the Falcons will use him, given that the team has a seemingly endless list of needs on defense. Reed has just 169 tackles and 14.5 sacks through four NFL seasons, but he's known as a solid run defender.
