Reed and the Falcons have come to terms on a revised contract which will keep him in Atlanta for a fourth season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The reduction of Reed's $5.44 million cap hit affords Atlanta some much needed financial wiggle room, with the Falcons entering the offseason as a bottom-10 team in terms of available cap space. The 31-year-old defensive end proved to be more than a rotational player in 2017, starting in 14-plus games for the first time since 2013. In doing so, Reed logged the second-highest sack total (four) of his career, to go along with 41 tackles.
