Falcons signed ILB Tim Dobbins.
Dobbins, 31, appeared in three games for the Texans last season before getting his pink slip and spending the rest of the year on the street. He was a six-game starter for Houston the previous season when he racked up 43 tackles and received positive marks from PFF as a run defender and cover linebacker. Dobbins will compete for a roster spot in Atlanta after the Falcons lost Sean Weatherspoon to a torn Achilles' and traded away Akeem Dent to Houston.

Free agent ILB Tim Dobbins will visit the Falcons Thursday.
The Falcons are grasping at straws in the wake of Sean Weatherspoon's season-ending Achilles' tear. Dobbins would be a better option than Jonathan Vilma as he's only 31 and doesn't have chronic knee issues. He also has plenty of 3-4 ILB experience, making 22 career starts with the Chargers, Dolphins and Texans. Regardless, we're expecting rookie Prince Shembo to get the first crack at Weatherspoon's job over one of these street free agents.

Texans ILB Tim Dobbins skipped OTAs to oversee the construction of his house.
Coach Gary Kubiak was not pleased with his reserve linebacker. "I had an obligation to my family," Dobbins said Tuesday. "I've been having this house a year already, demoed it all myself. I've been trying to work on it myself and just trying to learn another skill." Due just $840,000, Dobbins' desire to "learn a new skill" shouldn't cost him his roster spot after he started six games in 2012.

Texans ILB Tim Dobbins was a no-show at OTAs on Tuesday.
"Yeah, (OTAs are) voluntary," coach Gary Kubiak said. "(Dobbins) isn't here." It appears he just didn't show up. Dobbins is expected to return to a backup role in 2013 after not impressing as a starter last season.

Texans placed ILB Tom Dobbins (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season, and promoted LB Cameron Collins from their practice squad.
Dobbins isn't thought to have a long-term injury, but his "badly" sprained ankle was severe enough that the Texans determined he had no chance to help with their playoff run. Barrett Ruud and Bradie James will be Houston's starting inside linebackers against Cincinnati. It's an area the Bengals can attack.

Battling a "badly sprained" ankle and chronically sore shoulder, Texans ILB Tim Dobbins' status is in doubt for Saturday's playoff game versus the Bengals.
If Dobbins can't play, the Texans will be forced to go with Barrett Ruud next to Bradie James. Coverage has been an issue since Brian Cushing went down, which means the Bengals could exploit the middle of the field with Andrew Hawkins and Jermaine Gresham.

Texans ILB Tim Dobbins suffered a thumb injury in Sunday's win, but isn't expected to miss any time.
With Brian Cushing and Brooks Reed both out with injury, the Texans can ill afford for Dobbins to miss any time, but he's expected to play with a cast. The journeyman veteran has graded out roughly neutral in Pro Football Focus' ratings.
