2: Biermann is on an expendable contract.

While the official numbers have not been released yet, it is pretty much a given that Biermann will not be making a lot of money this year. The biggest cap hit of his career was last year, when he made a little more than $4 million. Seeing how he garnered next to no interest when he hit free agency, he has most likely been signed to a one year “prove it” deal with little to no guaranteed money. His roster spot is far from guaranteed to him, so he will have to go out and earn it. If he can’t do that, he can be cut with next to no cap penalty. This will prove to be a low risk, high reward signing for the Atlanta Falcons.
