The Falcons have agreed to terms with William Moore on a five-year deal, NFL.com's Albert Breer reported, citing a team source. The safety signed for $32 million with a $30 million base salary, a source told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. He received an $8.25 million signing bonus, will make $10.5 million in the first year and $18 million in the first three.

Moore wanted to stay in Atlanta all along, and was a priority for the organization. He had a career-high 75 tackles in 2012 and has 11 interceptions in the last three seasons combined. Details of the contract were unavailable, though he was expected to command Michael Griffin money (five years, $35 million).
The three-day negotiation period started at midnight, but things have been quiet because the league threatened teams with tampering investigations if deals were reached before Tuesday. Moore shouldn't fall into that category since he re-signed with his own team.
