first_img Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Weatherspoon, 27, has played in only seven games over the last two seasons for the Atlanta Falcons. In 2012, he was bothered by knee and foot injuries and missed all of last season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.ESPN’s John Clayton all but confirmed the report Monday morning on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.“It’s agreed to. Nothing’s finalized until (Tuesday), yeah but he’s coming in for a little less than $4 million a year on a one-year deal,” Clayton told Doug and Wolf. “Good football player. He’s had some injuries the last couple of years, so you hope he stays healthy, but yeah, it’s a done deal.”Originally a first-round pick (19th overall) of the Falcons out of Missouri in 2010, Weatherspoon was a very productive player in his first three years in the league. In 2011, he had a career-high 115 tackles, four sacks and eight passes defensed.
