Pelissero added that the deal is for two years, $21 million.
ESPN first reported the news.
Trufant, 29, dealt with a number of injuries in 2019, which limited him to just nine starts. He missed Weeks 6-8 (Week 9 bye) with a toe injury only to return in Week 11 and play until Week 14 when he broke his forearm and landed on injured reserve. He contributed 18 tackles, a career-high four interceptions and seven passes defended in those appearances.
The 22nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Trufant burst onto the scene with a strong first three seasons en route to being named as a Pro Bowl alternate in 2015. Unfortunately, he's been hampered by ailments in two of the last four seasons; in 2016, he also played nine games before being sidelined with a shoulder injury, missing the team's infamous run to Super Bowl LI.
In the seasons that weren't cut short, Trufant started 79 of a possible 80 games and played a vital role on the Falcons defense, often being the one to shadow the opposing team's most lethal receiver.
