Big name free agents the Atlanta Falcons should target

The Atlanta Falcons have a lot of holes on their roster, but they have the chance to make a quick turnaround under head coach Dan Quinn. They already have their franchise quarterback, Matt Ryan, in place and if they reel in a strong free agent class they should be able to make some noise in for the 2015 season. Atlanta has roughly $35 million in cap space which means they’ll be...

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.

Atlanta Falcons sign DE Tyson Jackson

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.

DeVito...
