The 'hawks are in need of some help at the linebacker position with the loss of backup Will Herring recently to the New Orleans Saints, and feel that Leber is not only one of the better free agents left on the market but would contribute nicely to their defensive system already in place.
Leber was a third round draft choice in 2002 and made his way into the league with the San Diego Chargers from 2002-2005. From there he played up in Minnesota with the Vikings the last five seasons until he became a free agent this offseason. In his ten year NFL career Leber has racked up 483 tackles, 15 forced fumbles, and 5 interceptions along the way.
