UPDATE: MARCH 7, 2012 6:30 pm
Defensive end Kroy Biermann signed a new three-year contract with the Falcons this afternoon…. reports FoxSports.
During the negotiations, Biermann wanted a three-year contract while the team preferred a four-year deal.
Biermann, a fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft, has been a core special teams player, part-time starter and key player in the defensive end rotation. He’s also has been solid when dropping in coverage, a particular skill that may get more use under new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.
Biermann has played in 64 games and made 17 starts. He started 14 of 16 games in 2010, when the Falcons went 13-3 and won the NFC South.

This item re Kim Zolciak’s husband, Kroy Biermann signing with the Atlanta Falcons is old news… and as been in “draft” mode waiting to hear news of Kroy signing… which as of today, he has not. Kroy was supposed to sign by March 3!
Becky has been instructed to let this fly… and SH will update this item when Kroy signs!
WOO-HOO! Kim and Kroy can BUY the house that they are now renting in Roswell, GA… when Kroy agrees with the contract!
“Based on reports earlier this week, a Biermann contract extension should be officially announced any day now. The deal will fall along the lines of three or four years and $10M-$12M total.
If the Falcons do not re-sign their own players, they will become unrestricted free agents at 4 p.m. on March 13, when the league’s new business year starts.
The final sticking point is that Biermann wants a three-year contract. The team would like to lock him up for four years. The deal will land in the $10-12 million range… that would be around $3 million a year.”
NOTE: Kroy is the first player from Montana drafted. With this deal, Kim could say goodbye to Bravo and Miss Andy. Will she??? Hmmmmm….
