FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP)

The Atlanta Falcons got off to a low-key start in free agency, agreeing to terms on new deals with backup quarterback Chris Redman and third receiver Harry Douglas.

The Falcons announced the deals Tuesday night, a few hours after the start of the NFL free agency period.

Redman has been Matt Ryan's backup the past four years. Last season, the second-stringer appeared in five games, completing 18 of 28 passes for 188 yards.

Douglas works in three-receiver sets with Roddy White and Julio Jones. Douglas is coming off a career-best season: 39 receptions for 498 yards and one touchdown.

The bulk of the Falcons' work is still to come. Their unrestricted free agents include linebacker Curtis Lofton and defensive end John Abraham.
