The Falcons and veteran safety Chris Hope, a former Pro Bowler, agreed to contract terms on Friday.
Hope, 31, was a third-round draft pick (94th overall) in 2002 by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Florida State product played four seasons with the Steelers before playing the next six seasons with the Titans. He made the Pro Bowl after the 2008 season.
Hope, 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds, has 20 career interceptions.
Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan expressed concern about the depth at safety behind starters William Moore and Thomas DeCoud during minicamp.
Hope started 109 of 147 games over his career.
In 2011, Hope played in 10 games with two starts and made 33 tackles with one interception, one pass defense and two fumble recoveries.
He started every game for the Titans from 2008-10.
Over his career Hope has 758 total tackles (552 solo), four sacks, four forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries. He was a member of the Steelers 2005 Super Bowl title team.
The Falcons made room for Hope by releasing wide receiver Cody Pearcy on Thursday.
