The Atlanta Falcons have added depth and experience to their offensive line by signing former Washington Redskins tackle Tom Compton.

The Falcons on Wednesday also signed linebacker LaRoy Reynolds, who played in 13 games, including one start, with the Chicago Bears last season.

Compton has played in 44 games, including 10 starts, with the Redskins the last three years.

Reynolds played with Jacksonville in 2013-14 before signing with the Bears. He had 12 tackles, including two for losses, in 2015.

The Falcons opened the free agency period by signing former Cleveland center Alex Mack.

The Falcons also have signed former Cincinnati wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, former Miami defensive end Derrick Shelby and former Arizona linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who began his career with Atlanta.
