http://www.ajc.com/sports/football/falcons-sign-ishmael-one-year-million-deal/qr8GKi7RNyR3afUtDEo9OJ/

McClure ESPN Atl: The Falcons appear to have found a return man in wide receiver Andre Roberts, who is signing a one-year, $1.8 million deal, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. Roberts returned 33 kicks for 747 yards for Detroit last season. He also returned 20 punts for 246 yards with two touchdowns, including an 85-yarder. The Falcons moved on from veteran return man Eric Weems, who signed with the Titans. Falcons also lost wide receiver Aldrick Robinson to the 49ers, so Roberts could provide another speedy threat with Julio Jones and Taylor Gabriel.

Kapadia ESPN Seattle: The Seahawks will have TE Jared Cook in for a free-agent visit, a league source confirmed. Seattle is in a tricky spot with its tight ends. Jimmy Graham is entering the final year of his deal, and the only tight end the Seahawks have signed beyond 2017 is Nick Vannett. Luke Willson and Brandon Williams are both free agents. Cook caught 30 balls for 377 yards and a touchdown in 10 regular-season games with the Packers last season. He had 18 grabs for 229 yards in three postseason games. NFL Network was first to report the Seahawks' interest in Cook.
