Atlanta Falcons Offseason: Breaking Down the 2011 Free Agents: WR Brian Finneran


2010 Stats: 19 receptions, 166 yards, 3 touchdowns

Summary: This is probably the hardest decision the Falcons will have on the offensive side of the ball.

The number one and two receivers are set in stone with Roddy White and Michael Jenkins. The three spot is where it is up for grabs.

The Falcons have Harry Douglas and Eric Weems listed as backups at the WR spot.

Finneran will hit the age of 35 next year which could have an impact on the decision the Falcons make. If the Falcons can get him at a reasonable price they should keep them. But at the same time, it wouldn’t be that big of lose.

Because if Finneran leaves I would expect Harry Douglas and Eric Weems to step up and fill the void.

Verdict: Let Go

    Finn has provided versatility and a willingness to do anything that is asked of him. Weems is too valuable on special teams and Douglas can’t run routes. Ditch Harry and keep Brian; at least he’s reliable.
