So John Abraham and Dwight Freeney are both still hanging out unemployed. With teams like the Broncos, Patriots, Saints, Steelers and Dolphins all rumored to be interested.
When it comes to the Dolphins, a report from the Miami Herald has some new info on their interest in John Abraham. Which is to say, it's lukewarm. Pro Football Talk lays out the scenario the Dolphins, which is also pretty similar to the Patriots.
With a desire to upgrade the offensive line in addition to a need for more pass rushing help for Cameron Wake, the Dolphins have a good chance of landing a player who fills one of those holes in the draft. If they don’t land someone for the other spot, they can pursue either Abraham or one of the veteran right tackles on the market. Several other teams are in similar positions, which means that they are unlikely to miss out on a chance to make their bid for a free agent because they all get scooped up prior to the draft.
The Patriots also have ot...

When Falcons head coach Mike Smith is delivering his most boilerplate coachspeak, he likes to say the team keeps its goals internally.
If thats the case this offseason, then his players are not doing a very good job of keeping that information confidential.
In truth, after the Falcons advanced to the NFC championship last January, losing on a fourth-down play in the final minute...
Roddy White sure loves to talk.
The other day, he made the profound statement, that it is Super Bowl or nothing for the Falcons, as if anyone was thinking differently. Today he says with the addition of Steven Jackson, they will be an offensive juggernaut no one can stop.
Just spoke to Roddy White. He said with Steven Jackson now on the #Falcons you can’t defend them.
The task facing Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff in 2013 might not be easy, but it is simple: improve a team that was the top seed in the 2012 NFL playoffs and made it to the NFC Championship Game. In other words, bring home that long-awaited Lombardi Trophy to the great city of Atlanta. [...]The post Best and worst offseason moves: Atlanta Falcons by Raheel Ali appeared...
The Atlanta Falcons know that the only way they can make believers out of fans is to make noise in the playoffs. A team that traditionally always does well in the regular season, hasn’t always translated to success in the playoff games. While they somewhat broke the mode last season by making a NFC Championship [...]
It's pretty simple: This is a photo gallery of the official Atlanta Falcons cheerleading squad for the 2013 season. Enjoy.
D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal believes Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff could be looking to trade up for cornerback in this year’s draft.
Ledbetter is basing this on an assessment of Dimitroff’s draft history and the fact that they could really use another cornerback to round out their secondary.
Atlanta released Dunta Robinson early on in the offseason and lost Brent...
The Falcons are currently low on the salary cap totem pole so as we wait for the draft let's take a lap around the internet and look at some of the more interesting Falcons links...
Pro Football Focus did a write up on how often teams used the Nickel last season. Turns out that the Falcons used it quite a lot. According to their data, out of 1161 total plays, the Falcons...
The Falcons are bringing back the same backfield they had last season with the exception of trading up by replacing Michael Turner with Steven Jackson. Behind Jackson we have Jacquizz Rodgers, Jason Snelling and Antone Smith. At fullback we have Bradie Ewing and I just don't see us carrying more than one FB on the roster.
There are so many needs on defense and now...
