Dontari Poe gets the same amount of money as Bennie Logan

Report Dolphins to host DT Dontari Poe

The Atlanta Falcons will profit from the addition of defensive tackle Dontari Poe in many ways.

Per a league source, the Falcons have agreed to terms with Poe, who drew interest from several cities after becoming a free agent last week. Unless Poe was willing to leave millions on the table, Miami wasn't a real option. He followed that year up with another Pro Bowl selection in 2014, while posting a career high six sacks and 46 total tackles. ESPN reported the deal is for one year and $8 million, with an additional $2 million in incentives. This could be the best landing spot for Poe in 2017. Apparently money wasn't the most important factor for Poe, as Josina Anderson reports that he accepted less money to join the Falcons.

The comment from general manager John Dorsey was less optimistic about Poe's return and perhaps indicated the Chiefs would take him back but only at their price. Poe spent his first five seasons with the Chiefs, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a contract extension to keep him in Kansas City. Atlanta had a serious void on the defensive line, as Jonathan Babineaux and Tyson Jackson were not going to be back with the Falcons.

He is also a two-time Pro Bowler.

As for the Raiders, they likely couldn't afford to pay someone around $8 million for this upcoming season and will have to look elsewhere to fill their need at defensive tackle.

We'll know by this time next year whether they made a good decision with Logan and Poe.
