Atlanta announced that it has signed contracts with defensive end
Clayborn's 2014 season ended early due to a biceps injury. Adams, a journeyman entering his sixth NFL season, appeared in 12 games for the Jets in 2014 and totaled 24 tackles and one interception.
Clayborn played the entire 2013 season and recorded 64 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks.
Morgan, who played college football in Atlanta at Georgia Tech, has 19 sacks over his last three seasons. Clayborn missed most of last season with a biceps injury but registered 5.5 sacks in 2013 and 7.5 sacks as a rookie in 2011.
Clayborn was trying to work through the injury in recent days, having practiced on a limited basis both Wednesday and Thursday. However, the injury proved to be too much for him to keep going, necessitating an IR trip for the second time in three seasons.
