ATLANTA - SEPTEMBER 13: Tony Gonzalez #88 of the Atlanta Falcons enters the field to face the Miami Dolphins at Georgia Dome on September 13, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
Dustin Keller, Tight End Keller first needs to prove he is healthy, but there was no questioning his ability on the field. If the Falcons like what they see I believe they will sign him to a one year “prove it” deal in order to fill the void left by Tony Gonzalez’s retirement. He will provide veteran leadership for the younger tight ends, while becoming an explosive pass-catcher for Matt Ryan. Verdict: 1 year 1.5 million dollar deal with incentives. Anthony Spencer, Defensive End/Outside Linebacker Spencer was considered an elite player for the Cowboys but never got the chance to play this year because of multiple injuries. Rumors are that he is healthy and ready to see the field in 2014. Atlanta is facing some serious turnover along the defensive line, and Spencer could be just the right fit for Mike Nolan. The Cowboys most likely will not be able to secure him for another contract due to their cap situation. Dimitroff and company could sign Spencer in the neighborhood of a 2 year deal in order to bolster the pass rush. Verdict: 2 year 7 million dollar deal.   Kenny Britt, Wide Receiver Britt has been a disappointment in Tennessee, but the good news is that he is only 25 years old. Not so long ago Britt was coming off a breakout season. If the Falcons can’t resign Harry Douglas they might take a look at Britt to fill the void. He is a big receiver who needs a good environment around him to succeed and the Falcons locker room can do just that. He would make a contribution if signed to a one year prove it deal. The pending contract talks with Roddy White could hamper Atlanta’s decision making process when it comes to the wide out market. Verdict: 1 year $1 million Make sure you follow @cover32_ATL and @cover32_NFL on Twitter for all the latest breaking news, columns, blogs and features from the Falcons and the entire NFL.
