    Safety Lawyer Milloy agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons Friday on a three-year contract worth more than $6 million, including a $2.5 million signing bonus, according to Kevin Poston, one of his agents.

    The four-time Pro Bowler was released by Buffalo two weeks ago, a move that saved the Bills $3.75 million against the cap next season in the final year of Milloy's four-year contract.

    Milloy was the Bills' second-leading tackler with 170 last year, his 10th in the NFL. He broke his thumb in Week 2, but barely missed a down. He was out for the first five games of the 2004 season with a broken forearm, then returned to help to lead Buffalo from a 1-4 start to finish 9-7.

    Sure does. This move made me feel out of it a little bit. I certainly didn't think Milloy could have been had for so little.

    170 tackles for a safety is absurd.

    our guys would miss a number of games with a broken thumb.
