Todd Gurley, who played for the Georgia Bulldogs from 2012 through 2014, has signed a one-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons.

Gurley, who is now 25 years old, was selected 10th overall by the St. Louis Rams, now Los Angeles Rams, in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and was named AP Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 and AP Offensive Player of the Year in 2017.

In five seasons with the Rams, Gurley rushed 1,265 times for 5,404 yards and 58 touchdowns. He also caught 218 passes for 2,090 yards and another 12 touchdowns.

The 2019 season for Todd Gurley saw him rush for the lowest number of yards in his professional career with 857. However, he scored 12 touchdowns and caught 31 passes for 207 yards with eight more touchdowns.

The Falcons have acknowledged the signing, but nothing will be official until Gurley passes a physical with Atlanta’s team doctors. That can’t be done until the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is over or at least under control.

News of Todd Gurley sparked a celebration across Bulldog nation and from the Falcons themselves.
