FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons have re-signed defensive end Chauncey Davis to a $14 million, four-year contract,
stemming their losses in free agency, .
Davis's agent, Kevin Conner, confirmed the terms of the deal Wednesday, which includes about $8 million to be paid out over the first two years.
Davis was the first major unrestricted free agent to sign with the Falcons, who lost five-time Pro Bowl linebacker Keith Brooking to Dallas, cornerback Domonique Foxworth to Baltimore and linebacker Michael Boley to the New York Giants. Atlanta also cut ties with safety Lawyer Milloy.
Conner said his coach Mike Smith told Davis he'd have a chance to earn a starting job ahead of former first-round pick Jamaal Anderson.
