Bills signed DE Kroy Biermann to a one-year contract.
Biermann has been a defensive end throughout his career, but it is likely he will be asked to play outside linebacker in Buffalo. The Bills are very thin on the strongside after losing Shaq Lawson (shoulder), Manny Lawson (pec) and IK Enemkpali (knee). Biermann has the run-stopping skills to do well there.

Free agent DE Kroy Biermann is visiting the Lions on Wednesday.

It's the first we've heard from Biermann since he made a visit to the Bills in March. He's possibly dealing with an unknown injury, as Biermann is coming off a decent season as a run-stuffing edge defender in Atlanta.

Free agent DE Kroy Biermann is visiting the Bills on Monday.

It is the first reported visit for Biermann. An excellent run-stuffer at defensive end, Biermann is a versatile lineman who would fit in well with coach Rex Ryan. He recorded 2.5 sacks and 51 tackles in 516 snaps with the Falcons last season.

Falcons re-signed DE Kroy Biermann to a one-year, $1.925 million contract that includes a $500,000 signing bonus.

Coming off career highs in tackles (75) and sacks (4.5), Biermann will return as part of Atlanta's front-seven rotation. Biermann's capability of playing both linebacker and defensive line will make him a candidate for either of new coach Dan Quinn's edge positions, one called "Leo" and the other "Otto." As Leo mostly rushes the passer, we suspect Biermann will fit better at Otto.

After playing nearly 91 percent of the Falcons' Week 1 defensive snaps, OLB Kroy Biermann was in on just 65 percent in Week 3.

At first glance, Biermann's usage might seem the product of a blowout, but he saw snaps on every series with the exception of Tampa's final possession. While Biermann did see some subpackage snaps, Atlanta rotated Jonathan Massaquoi and Osi Umenyiora in obvious passing situations. This would make sense, as Biermann currently grades out as the No. 45 pass rushing 3-4 outside linebacker among 48 qualifiers at Pro Football Focus.

Kroy Biermann played 69-of-76 (91 percent) of the defensive snaps in the Falcons' Week 1 win over New Orleans.

The outside linebacker who has been featured on Hard Knocks and Real Housewives of Atlanta showed no ill effects from the torn Achilles that sidelined him for most of the 2013 season. Biermann saw a healthy chunk of subpackage snaps, recording six total tackles (three solo).

Falcons DE/OLB Kroy Biermann (Achilles') will be limited at the beginning of training camp.

Biermann tore his Achilles' in Week 2. He'll have every third practice day off and won't play in at least the first preseason game. Coach Mike Smith fully expects Biermann to be 100 percent for the opener. The Falcons need Biermann to return to form, as he's one of their few experienced edge players.

Falcons DE/LB Kroy Biermann (Achilles) has begun on-field work.

Biermann blew out his Achilles during Week 2 of last season. He's ahead of schedule and figures to be near full strength by the time training camp rolls around. Biermann is a valuable and versatile piece in Mike Nolan's hybrid scheme.
Wed, Mar 26, 2014 11:27:00 AM

Falcons placed DE/LB Kroy Biermann (Achilles) and FB Bradie Ewing (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

The loss of Biermann is huge; he was a movable chess piece in Mike Nolan's defense, playing every snap and operating as both an up-front and second-level player. Look for the Falcons to lean on Jonathan Babineaux more at defensive end going forward. Ewing's loss is less significant; he only played 14 snaps through the first two games. Still, the Biermann injury is big and could cause a ripple effect on an Atlanta defense that already had average talent.

Falcons LE Kroy Biermann left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Rams with an ankle injury.

Biermann was carted to the locker room after making his way to the sideline. Atlanta defenders are dropping like flies these first two weeks.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 02:29:00 PM

Falcons DE Kory Biermann saw extensive playing time at linebacker during Saturday's camp practice.

Just like last year, Biermann will be a "movable piece" in Mike Nolan's hybrid defense. Nolan even used Biermann to play some safety in 2012. The Falcons have upgraded at end by adding fourth-round pick Malliciah Goodman, fifth-rounder Stansly Maponga, and Osi Umenyiora to the defensive line rotation.

Falcons DE Kroy Biermann could see the majority of his snaps at 3-4 OLB in the team's multiple defense.

The Falcons plan on running a hybrid defense under Mike Nolan, which will feature more 3-4 looks. The team drafted two traditional defensive ends and signed Osi Umenyiora, increasing the odds Biermann will focus on more of "movable" role. Nolan added Biermann is a player he believes can help cover athletic tight ends, implying he may also see time at SAM linebacker in 4-3 alignments.
Sat, Jun 1, 2013 11:07:00 AM

Speaking at Monday's season-ending presser, Falcons coach Mike Smith didn't rule out switching from a 4-3 defense to 3-4 scheme in 2013.

"I'm not ruling out anything," Smith said. DC Mike Nolan was a 3-4 man until arriving in Atlanta, and a switch has been rumored for over a year. The Falcons' 4-3 attack generated just 29 sacks in 2012, which was 28th in the league. DE Kroy Biermann would be a candidate to shift to linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, while OLB Sean Weatherspoon would likely kick inside.
Mon, Jan 21, 2013 03:41:00 PM

In addition to special teams, Falcons DE Kroy Biermann has played four different spots in Mike Nolan's defense this season.

"The man is a beast," says veteran pass rusher John Abraham. Biermann has been used as a "spy" on Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III and Michael Vick, and has even dropped into coverage as a safety. In his 4-3/3-3-5 hybrid scheme, Nolan has used Biermann as a "movable chess piece," to borrow a favorite term of NFL Films guru Greg Cosell.
Fri, Nov 2, 2012 09:45:00 AM

Falcons re-signed DE Kroy Biermann to a three-year, $9 million contract.

Biermann, 26, played off the bench behind RE John Abraham and LE Ray Edwards last season, mostly seeing action on running downs. He managed 37 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Biermann is a solid left end, rotational type, but he seems to have maxed out as a 30 snap-per-game player who's not going to bring much pressure. Defensive end remains a need spot for Atlanta this offseason.
