Offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood joins the Atlanta Falcons, having been released by the Washington Redskins last week.

The Atlanta Falcons have announced that they have signed offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood.

The 30-year-old left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the end of the 2012 season, initially joining the Washington Redskins, but he was released ahead of the team's final cuts last week.

Trueblood was a regular starter during his first six seasons with the Buccaneers, but spent last year as a backup, before finishing the campaign on the injured reserve list.

The Falcons waived tackle Terren Jones to make room for Trueblood on their roster.
