Justin Durant has played on several NFL teams in his career and has done a great job at every destination that he has arrived in. Durant will give the Falcons a great outside linebacker who can do it all. Rush the passer, tackle and have the occasional interception. The Flacons saw first hand just how good Durant could be in the first preseason game of the year.

Durant picked off Marcus Mariota and returned it deep inside Titans territory. Durant displayed his ability to read routs and make plays on the ball. If he can stay healthy, Durant will be a force on a different look Falcons defense in 2015.
