The Atlanta Falcons have released fullback Ovie Mughelli, according to the team’s official website.
Mughelli signed a six-year, $18 million deal with the Falcons in 2007. The contract included a $5 million signing bonus, making the deal the largest for a fullback in NFL history at the time.
The Wake Forest alumni was a Pro Bowler for the Falcons in 2010, and was selected as an All Pro in 2006 and 2010. Last season the 31-year-old appeared in just seven games for the Falcons.
