Linebacker Rashaan Evans, a 2018 first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, agreed to terms with the Falcons, his agent Drew Rosenhaus told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Monday.

Evans, who played at Alabama, was drafted 22nd overall by the Titans. He’s 6-foot-2 and 232 pounds.

Evans has played in 59 games and made 50 starts for the Titans. He had his best season in 2019, when he finished the season with 111 tackles.

Evans, who was slowed by an ankle injury last season, has 317 career tackles.

The move reunites Evans with Falcons coach Arthur Smith and former Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees.

The Falcons lost inside linebacker Foye Oluokun in free agency. He led the NFL in tackles last season and signed with Jacksonville.

The Titans elected not to exercise Evans’ fifth-year option last offseason, which led to him becoming an unrestricted free agent.
