The Seahawks would like to re-sign Irvin, however, when his contract runs out after the 2015 season, per Rapoport.
The question is whether Irvin would be interested in signing on the cheap prior to testing his value on the open market.
To that end, "chatter has already emerged" that Irvin could be traded to Atlanta, according to Pro Football Talk.
It's a prospective deal that would certainly make sense on the surface. The Falcons are desperately in need of an edge rusher, and the move would reunite Irvin with coach Dan Quinn, formerly Seattle's defensive coordinator.
Irvin, 27, played the eighth-most snaps among Seahawks defensive players last season, notching 37 tackles, 6.5 sacks and a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns.
