Tuesday Morning Football The present and future offensive-line outlook for the 49ers and Raiders

The Raiders waived Irvin over the weekend, though he couldn't clear waivers until Tuesday.

They seem to have been keeping that spot open for defensive end Bruce Irvin, an Atlanta native, who chose to spurn the Patriots in favor of the Falcons. Irvin, 31, should help bolster the pass rush working alongside former sack champ Vic Beasley Jr. and Takk McKinley. He celebrated his return home by posting on his Twitter account "Man it's time!"

The Steelers and Patriots reportedly offered Irvin more money. Atlanta, meanwhile, has 17 sacks this season, tied for fifth-fewest in the league. In fact, he played just nine snaps in Oakland's blowout loss to the 49ers, led by former undrafted free agent Nick Mullens.

Irvin (6-3, 250) played four seasons with Seattle before joining the Raiders in 2016.

It will be interesting to see if the Steelers eventually do add another pass rusher for this stretch run.

It is no surprise he worked his way East upon his release, as he has a strong connection with Falcons coach Dan Quinn, who served as defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks from 2013-14 before arriving in Atlanta. Instead, Mack was traded to Chicago a week before the season for a package of draft picks following a lengthy holdout.

The Falcons have won three straight games though their defense, ravaged by injuries, remains a liability; the unit ranks 30th, according to Football Outsiders, ahead of only the Raiders and Buccaneers.
