ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Atlanta Falcons said Thursday they'd have agreed to terms with free-agent agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe. 

Poe is a two-time Pro Bowler, who spent his first five NFL seasons in Kansas City. 

Last season during a December 25 game against the Denver Broncos, Poe, at 340+ pounds, became the largest player in NFL history to throw a touchdown pass.
