Why the Atlanta Falcons are still not done in Free Agency

Atlanta started off the free agent period strongly by shoring up both the offensive and defensive lines. The addition of Tyson Jackson almost certainly signals the move to a hybrid 3-4/4-3 defense, and Jon Asamoah adds toughness to what was last years 2nd worst offensive line. Despite these  steps in the right direction, it’s hard to call our overall free-agent pick-ups a success...

I wrote in my Chiefs’ off-season preview that Tyson Jackson would be lucky if he got the 3 year 12.6 million dollar deal that the Chiefs gave teammate Mike DeVito last off-season.

FA Focus: Tyson Jackson

With free agency a few weeks away, I’ll be profiling some second-tier players who might be good fits for Green Bay.  The Chiefs drafted Tyson Jackson third overall in 2009. The Packers chose B.J.
