The Falcons signed Rubin to a contract Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Falcons waived Taniela Tupou from the 53-man roster to make room for Rubin, who will presumably take over Tupou's role as the top backup to defensive tackle Dontari Poe. The 31-year-old Rubin was once a high-end IDP asset along the defensive line with a pair of 80-tackle campaigns on his resume, but he's seen his effectiveness wane in recent years. Rubin's decline has resulted in him bouncing around the league a bit, as the Falcons are the third team he'll suit up for since 2016.

Rubin was released by the Broncos on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin was only active for two games in Denver this season, and he played a total of 17 snaps. He has been a steady contributor in the past, so the 31-year-old may still have a future in the league.

Rubin is not expected to play Sunday against Dallas since he just signed Friday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin is expected to help add depth to the battered defensive front in Denver. It is unclear how much the Broncos will use Rubin when he is active, but it isn't likely he'll be summoned enough to be an IDP threat.

Rubin signed with the Broncos on Friday, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin was most recently let go by the Seahawks prior to the start of the regular season and shortly following the acquisition of Sheldon Richardson. With the Broncos dealing with a couple of injuries on the defensive line, Rubin will help sure up some of their depth within that unit.

Rubin was released by the Seahawks on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to trade him following the acquisition of Sheldon Richardson, Rubin has been released. The move may free up time for the likes of Rodney Coe and/or Tylor Harris at left defensive tackle.

Rubin (wrist) does not appear on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin sprained his wrist in Saturday's game versus the Cardinals so his absence from the injury report Wednesday evidences the injury likely isn't serious. Barring some sort of setback, Rubin appears in line to be ready for the Seahawks' season finale Sunday versus the Niners.

Rubin sprained his wrist in Saturday's loss to Arizona, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin missed time on Saturday due to his sprained wrist and his status for Week 17 remains on clear. His ability to practice this week will provide greater insight in to his availability for Sunday's regular season finale against the 49ers. John Jenkins and Jarran Reed will figure to see increased roles if Rubin is sidelined.

Rubin (wrist) is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin's absence could prove significant Saturday given the Seahawks' lack of depth along the interior of their defensive line. Rookie Jarran Reed is the likely candidate to fill in at defensive tackle as long as Rubin is sidelined.

Rubin and the Seahawks agreed on a three-year deal Monday, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rubin played in all 16 games for the Seahawks last season, resulting in 36 tackles, two sacks, and one interception. Barring something unforeseen, the 29-year-old will be in store for a similar workload in 2016.

Rubin agreed to a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.

Following a seven-year stint in Cleveland that included 75 starts in 99 games, Rubin has found a new NFL home. It's been a few years since he was anywhere near the IDP radar, and while the Seahawks are thin at defensive tackle, Rubin won't necessarily be a starter.
