5 more free agents the Falcons should consider


As the weeks pass bye, more and more possibilities are emerging as free agency nears. One thing is for sure, Atlanta will be active. The question still remains, who will Atlanta covet? Two weeks ago, I brought up a few possibilities, this week, I will continue my analysis into the Falcons’ Free Agency Big Board.

#1 Branden Albert (Chiefs)

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers

This left tackle was previously franchised tagged. His team recently drafted their future tackle in Eric Fisher, so the Chiefs may not be too keen to pay Albert the salary he is due. Without a doubt, he has been a solid left tackle, and Atlanta is in the market to pay big money for a sure fire blind side protector. The rumor mill has highlighted Fisher moving to left tackle due to the fact that you do not draft a lineman that high to play right tackle… Albert will test free agency in the offseason. He is 29, and is rumored to be looking for anywhere north of $9 million per season. Atlanta fans, is it worth it to you to pay a left tackle that much money per season?

    Brandon Albert is risky. I’m a chiefs fan and can say that he commits a lot of penalties and mental errors.

    I don’t think we need a running back right now. We can train what we have so far. I saw a little action during the past back-up era in 2013. Those rookies need better training coupled with the fact that we still have a veteran at that position. Frankly, what we need are offensive line-men, a Defensive end to help my-man Umenyiora, Defensive tackler and a good replacement for Tony Gonzalez.. With a better protective-line to relieve our quarter back from always running for his life, and open-up the running lanes for our running backs, we will be set in that position.

  • Mike in Georgia

    Fred Davis could be intriguing as he is good…and we need a solid proven TE to replace Gonzo….Moreno would be nice but he will cost too much to be a true back-up to Steven Jackson….McFadden, however, could be a cheap backup due to his injury troubles but we certainly can’t count on him being there for every game. The left tackle from KC is probably needed but surely we can find a top left tackle for half that money and use the rest elsewhere, like on defense. Good luck Falcons’ brass.
