He added, "He will add to our rotation along the defensive line, while adding to our pass rush".
After news broke that Irvin was signing with his home-town team, Irvin took to Twitter to celebrate.
Irvin recorded 18 sacks in two-plus seasons with the Raiders.
"I'm the icing on the top", Irvin said. On Wednesday, Irvin chose to take his talents to the Atlanta Falcons.

San siro wants a barca sans Messi
And Zanetti, who played with Messi for Argentina, has his fingers crossed Barca opt to give the superstar more time to recover. However, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor was not on Ernesto Valverde's 18-man squad when it was released prior to the match.
The Falcons confirmed they had a contract agreement with Irvin.
Irvin is also reunited with Dan Quinn, who was previously the Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014. "He recognized that might be a special moment for him and he really is challenged".
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. He's a definite leader on the defensive side of the ball and not just the defense, on this team. At 1-7 on the season and being outscored by almost two touchdowns per game, things continue to go from bad to worse.
He's played with the Seahawks and Raiders in his seven years in the league with his best year coming last year with Oakland when he had 58 tackles and eight sacks.
Irvin had three sacks with Oakland, but played only nine snaps in a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night.
