Mike Peterson, one of my favorite non-Falcons in the league is now a Falcon. Yes folks we in the Falcons fold have watched two of our best linebackers leave via free-agency in an exodus the likes of which have not been seen since Moses. Well, we got a good player in return.
So, who is Mike Peterson and why is he so good? He plays smart, his tackling is almost automatic and he has great hands (15 career interceptions). This is the kind of signing we need in the Falcons organization. Peterson, a former Jaguar is familiar with Mike Smith’s schemes and is a player who Smith can trust to be a leader on an off the field.
Now with one good LB added via free agency we can see about another in the draft.
