The ideal candidate for the Atlanta Falcons, say hello to Jermaine Gresham.

The Cincinnatti Bengals know that they have to pay this guy at least 5 million dollars a year to keep him, and I don’t know if they want to do that when they already have A.J. Green and a few other promising receivers already on deck.

This would leave a chance for a team to take one of the better and consistent tight ends in the game. Why can’t it be the Atlanta Falcons? Picking up Gresham would make this offense one of the most feared in the NFL. As a defense, preparing for Julio Jones is hard enough but getting this big guy would leave them helpless.
