Falcons signed LB Pat Angerer, formerly of the Colts.
Angerer is apparently over the knee injury that ended his 2013 and required microfracture surgery. Injuries have limited the 2010 second-rounder to 11 appearances in each of the past two seasons, but he'll have a good shot at cracking the 53-man roster if he can remain healthy. The Falcons are ad libbing as they look to make up for the loss of ILB Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles'). Jul 22 - 4:14 PM

Free agent ILB Pat Angerer worked out for the Falcons on Tuesday.

Angerer, 27, ended last season on injured reserve with the Colts due to a knee injury that required offseason surgery. His workout with the Falcons is his first nibble of action since. The former second-round pick has also battled concussion and foot problems the past two years. Atlanta is simply looking for bodies after losing ILB Sean Weatherspoon to a torn Achilles' in the spring.
Jul 22 - 3:28 PM

Free agent ILB Pat Angerer is recovering from microfracture surgery, and "still a few months away" from conducting workouts.

Angerer claims he received interest from "several teams" earlier this offseason, but wants to hold off on free-agent visits until he's 100 percent healthy. Angerer was oft-injured during his four years in Indianapolis, dealing with multiple knee and foot issues. Angerer played 501 largely-ineffective snaps last season before landing on injured reserve in December.
Apr 8 - 8:49 PM

The Colts are not trying to re-sign free agent ILB Pat Angerer.

The Colts are looking elsewhere to fill the hole next to Jerrell Freeman. In-house options include Josh McNary and Kelvin Sheppard, and they're also in the mix for free agent D'Qwell Jackson. Angerer was a tackle machine when healthy for the Colts, but knee and foot injuries have crippled the 2010 second-round pick.
Mar 5 - 12:12 PM

The Indy Star says the odds favor the Colts moving on from free agent ILB Pat Angerer.

Even though the Colts have a hole next to Jerrell Freeman at inside linebacker, they don't appear to believe Angerer is the answer. The 2010 second-round pick has missed 10 games over the last two seasons and Josh McNary/Kelvin Sheppard have been just as effective. Angerer's market will be cool.
Feb 5 - 9:44 AM

Colts placed ILB Pat Angerer on injured reserve, ending his season.

Angerer was a healthy inactive in Week 15, but dealt with a knee injury earlier this year that is expected to require surgery. He'll finish 2013 with 63 tackles, 0.5 sacks, and an interception over 11 games (nine starts) and will enter unrestricted free agency this offseason. The Colts have signed veteran RB Shaun Draughn to replace Angerer on the active roster.

Colts ILB Pat Angerer (concussion) will return to the lineup in Week 2.
