The Falcons signed the 30-year-old Trueblood to add experience behind second-year right tackle Lamar Holmes, who has moved up as the starter after playing in only one game in his 2012 rookie season. The Falcons lost projected starter Mike Johnson for the season when he dislocated his left ankle and broke his left leg in training camp.
Trueblood has started 84 games over seven NFL seasons, all with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He lost his starting job after one game last year and finished the season on injured reserve. Tyler Polumbus was the starter at right tackle last year for the Redskins, but he is an unrestricted free agent.
