Steelers made an offer, missed out on signing Bruce Irvin

Steelers offered Bruce Irvin more money but he signed with the Falcons

Irvin said that he could have been paid more money by going to Pittsburgh or by New England when he spoke to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com.

For his career, Irvin has 40 sacks and 15 forced fumbles.

After news broke that Irvin was signing with his home-town team, Irvin took to Twitter to celebrate.

Irvin was having a rough year in Oakland under coach Jon Gruden (just like every other member of the organization).

Irvin was cut by Oakland last week after he played just nine snaps for the Raiders in their Thursday loss to the 49ers.

Trump warns House Democrats against investigating his administration
He was quick to distance himself from losing GOP House members who had been critical of his heated rhetoric, citing Florida Rep. Trump boasted a growing economy but campaigned aggressively in the closing days on a hardline anti-immigration message.

Irvin, 31, has a strong connection with Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, who served as the Seahawks' defensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014 before arriving in Atlanta. He then signed a four-year contract worth $37million with the Raiders in March 2016 that included $19m guaranteed. You can't put a price on the chance for me to play for my people and city!

Seattle has 21 sacks through the first eight games, which ranks in the middle third of the league, so it could used Irvin's pass-rushing ability.

The Falcons and Seahawks are 4-4, two games behind Carolina (6-2) and 1 1/2 games behind Minnesota (5-3-1) in the race for the conference's wild-card playoff berths.

It makes sense that a pass-rush-needy team like San Francisco would go after the former Seahawk. "He is familiar with our scheme and we are familiar with his strengths, so we are looking forward to getting him on the field as soon as possible".
