Josh Harris, who has been the Falcons’ long snapper since 2012, re-signed with the team Thursday after he was waived one day earlier.

Harris, a native of Carrollton who played on Auburn’s 2010 BCS championship team, has played in 139 career games and has 1,178 career special-teams snaps. Harris’ base salary was to be $1.075 million for the season.

The Falcons needed a roster spot to claim guard Colby Gossett off waivers and were gambling that Harris would pass through waivers and that no team would claim him. As a vested veteran, he became a free agent and could negotiate an increase in compensation.
