Bruce Irvin is a guy that every single Atlanta Falcons fan wants to see in a Falcons uniform next season. Irvin made some comments that he will be in Atlanta once his contract is up but don’t read too much into that. While that would be great, don’t think it’s a done deal because it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he isn’t.

The Falcons are in desperate need of linebackers and Irvin would fill part of that void. Not only can he rush the passer fairly well, but he provides speed which is something that Atlanta needs. Irvin has ties to Dan Quinn which helps but don’t think this is a lock.
