Hartsock signs with Falcons

Sunday, March 2, 2008 at 2:52pm

Free agent tight end Ben Hartsock has signed a four-year, $9 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons, leaving the Tennessee Titans after one-and-a-half seasons.

The Titans had wanted to keep Hartsock, who was their primary on-the-line blocking tight end, but allowed him to explore unrestricted free agency.

Hartsock, whom the Titans claimed off waivers from Indianapolis in 2006, is the second player to leave Tennessee via free agency. Defensive tackle Randy Starks signed a five-year deal with the Miami Dolphins on Friday.
