Atlanta Falcons: Three bargain free agents to target
Let’s take a look into the free agent bargain bin.
Wild spending in free agency has come to a halt, and now is the time to find bargains on the market. These players won’t be expected to have star impacts, but they can become key role players and help fill needs on the roster.
The Atlanta Falcons have been active in free agency, and landed the blockbuster signing of center Alex Mack, fixing a major need at the heart of the offensive line. Defensive lineman Derrick Shelby helps shore up the front seven and will provide some pass rush. Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu’s job will be to complement Julio Jones in a passing game that didn’t reach expectations in 2015.
Most of the attention is now on Chicago, home of the 2016 NFL Draft, but there’s still some room to make moves in free agency. The future of a number of talented players is yet to be decided, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be useful pieces on a team’s roster. Of the remaining free agents, who could the Falcons benefit from adding? Here’s three names for Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff to consider.
