Oakland-raiders-san-diego
Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com suggests that the Falcons could consider the idea of adding someone like free agent DL Richard Seymour to their roster in the coming weeks. As of now, Atlanta has $2.18 million in cap space to work with, but they still need to sign their recent draft picks.

According to Yasinskas, this could allow them pursue upgrades at either defensive tackle or possibly even at linebacker. The Falcons could create even more cap space if they were to reach an agreement with QB Matt Ryan on a long-term extension.

Asante Samuel thinks homosexuality shouldn’t be flaunted
