Which free agents should the Atlanta Falcons re-sign this offseason? Have your say below. The Falcons have 14 pending free agents this spring. The only thing we know is they can’t re-sign everybody.
Among the biggest names are guard Chris Chester and defensive end Adrian Clayborn. The Falcons will want both guys back, but as ever it all depends on the price. It takes two to tango, as they say.

Currently, the Falcons have $17.92 million available in cap room, which isn’t a large amount. When you consider the draft class will take up a percentage of that, not a whole lot is left for pending free agents. Of course, there will be cuts made and the possibility of contract adjustments to the players currently on the roster.
Here is a list of the Falcons’ pending free agents:
