The NFL is almost officially back, and the free agency is about to start. The Atlanta Falcons, after having a wonderful season, but a bad postseason loss, are ready to dip into the free agency and get this team to the Super Bowl.
Offensively, we are set, as long as we resign key veterans. Defensively, we need just a couple more playmakers.
We need an impact defensive end to take some of the pressure off of John Abraham and improve the pass rush. If the Falcons don’t believe Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson can lead our cornerbacks (after getting destroyed by the Packers), then we could go out and get a CB.
I think we need a nickelback most importantly, to handle those three-wide sets. Our linebacker core is set, but we could sign a good backup/special teams player. Also, we may need a punter, as Michael Keonen could leave through free agency.
