- According to McClure, Chester receives a one-year contract worth $2.8 million.
Chester reportedly had interest from the Eagles as well since he was cut loose by the Redskins earlier in the week. However, it appears as though the Falcons moved quickly to get a deal in place and prevent him from meeting with Philadelphia.
Atlanta cleared a few roster spots earlier in the day, so it appeared as though this move could be coming.
In 2014, Chester appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 33 guard out of 78 qualifying players.
