Mailbag: NFC South threats, nicknames, April Fools

In this week’s mailbag, we take a look at who could challenge New Orleans in the NFC South and give nicknames to the Saints’ star players: 1.) Now that free agency has died down, which team is the biggest threat to the Saints in the NFC South? To me the Falcons are the obvious answer to this question, and either those guys or the Saints will take the NFC South crown. While the...

Falcons are about $9.6 million under the salary cap

The Falcons now have 57 players under contract, but counting the top 51, per league rules, they have used up $123.9 million of their adjustment cap of $135.7 million. The only contract not in the NFLPA documents is Joe Hawley’s two-year, $6.5 million contract. His cap number is $2 million for 2014. So the cap space will be reduced by his number subtracted from the 51st lowest...

Falcons' signings signal return to basics

Mike Smith came to the Falcons as a coach who wanted to run the football and defend the run. Coming off a 4-12 season and with the moves the Falcons have made, particularly on the first day of free agency on Tuesday, that again has taken on primacy. Consider that three of the Falcons' signings on Tuesday (one of their own players and two unrestricted free agents) will likely...

Atlanta Falcons re-sign DT Jonathan Babineaux

I didn’t like the Falcons other two moves, signing Tyson Jackson and Paul Soliai, but I actually really like this move. Jonathan Babineaux is going into his age 33 season and has shown signs of decline over the past couple of seasons, but he’s still graded out above average on Pro Football Focus in each of the past 6 seasons, showing himself to be a rare model of consistency...

Jonathan Babineaux, top 50 NFL free agent, returns to Falcons

Jonathan Babineaux, was considered on of the better DT prospects in this year’s NFL free agent class. He’s ranked #53 overall by CBS Sports in this year’s free agent class. DT is definitely a position in need for the Chicago Bears, so it stands to reason that they may have had an interest in Jonathan Babineaux. However, he’s signed a three year extension to stay in Atlanta...

Jonathan Babineaux is locked down for another 3 years

Today the Atlanta Falcons locked down Babs to an additional three years.  The defense seems to be a main priority to the Falcons, and it is turning into a very solid free agency so far for the Birds.

With the Monday announcement that Mark Collins has been promoted to outside linebackers coach, it looks like the Atlanta Falcons will transition to a primary 3-4 defensive alignment this fall. This is particularly significant as the NFL's so-called "legal tampering period" ends at 4 p.m. Tuesday, and teams can start signing free agents following the end of the three...
