The Atlanta Falcons allowed veteran center Todd McClure to test the free agent waters this offseason, but he saw minimal interest on the market.

Tuesday, the team announced the 13-year veteran had agreed to terms on a deal with the only organization he has ever played for.

The St. Louis Rams had contract talks with McClure early in free agency, but no agreement was reached. The organization instead signed former Green Bay Packers center Scott Wells to a four-year contract.

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff still expressed excitement over the re-signing, referring to the former seventh-round draft choice as "the consummate leader."

McClure started every game from 2002-2010 (144 games) and has a career total of 179 starts.
