Alshon Jeffery is going to make a lot of money from a team in the offseason and that very well could be from the Atlanta Falcons who are in desperate need of wide receiver help. When healthy, Jeffery is one of the league’s best wide receivers and would turn the Falcons’ receiving corps into an elite group.

There is a very good possibility that the Falcons could cut ties with both Leonard Hankerson and Roddy white at season’s end. Hankerson is as good as gone and White could be following him right out the door as well. If that is the case, a wide receiver jumps to the top of the board in terms of needs for the Falcons.
Jeffery is going to want a lot of money and that’s understandable. The Falcons will likely clear a lot of cap space this offseason and would have plenty of money to pay Jeffery every penny he deserves. If the Falcons keep White then Jeffery most likely won’t be very high on the Falcons’ radar. However, if they let him drop him then he very well could be in a Falcons uniform next season.
