The Atlanta Falcons are reportedly talking to free agent defensive end Richard Seymour, according to Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com and John Manasso of FOXSportsSouth.com. Seymour, advancing in age, but still has some left in the tank, would bring some depth to line. He has 57.5 career sacks and spent the last 4 seasons in Oakland. The question is, how much can the Falcons afford to offer him? The team doesn't have much in salary cap room currently and we're not sure what kind of money Seymour's asking for. He played locally in the Atlanta in college for Georgia and is currently training in the area as well. Per FoxSports: 'Defensive line play has not been a strong suit for the Falcons in recent years and their ranks have grown thinner in terms of experienced players within the last year just as the franchise is seeking to improve upon last season’s appearance in the NFC Championship Game. They replaced John Abraham, whom they cut, with Umenyiora but they also cut ineffective defensive end Ray Edwards in the middle of the 2012 season and lost Vance Walker, who evolved into an effective tackle, to Oakland via free agency.'
