Ty Sambrailo-T – Signed
Ty’s play hasn’t been particularly good and some say its downright atrocious, but I can’t see Dimitroff ever trying to justify his trading a 5th round pick for him. Seeing how Ty has played he makes for a very cheap option for Atlanta this season as a swing tackle but look for the Falcons to draft another Tackle with a late round selection and move on from Ty Sambrailo. Dimitroff will look to add a depth tackle in free agency but either way Ty has given up his last sack on Matt Ryan.
I’ve truly have enjoyed our Dynamic Duo backfield Tevin had 167 rushing attempts for 800 yards four TDs with an average of nearly five yards an attempt. With the life expectancy of running backs in the NFL, Tevin will look to get paid this off-season and since Atlanta has already resigned Devonta Freeman, I do see him playing somewhere else this year. I do wish him all the best.
Matt Schaub-QB Signed
Lets just face the facts Matt Schaub will be back for another year. His style of play isn’t much different from Matt Ryans. Schaub was drafted by Atlanta and I see him finishing his career here. Matt Schaub has been a starter in the league for a few years and he is the best Quarterback to back up Matt Ryan, at least for this year.
I don’t see Logan coming back to the team this year. He did manage to catch 9 passes for 91 yds and 1 TD, but he was brought in as a blocking TE. Atlanta’s blocking was horrible this year so better options should be available for a blocker. Austin Hooper went to the pro bowl this year and has quietly become a rising star in Atlanta. I see Dimitroff signing a more reliable blocker this year as that needs to be emphasized in the off-season.
Justin Hardy- WR
I truly love the selection of Hardy in the draft. Id had hopes he would be an explosive player. It just never materialized, even though he has had flashes, He may just be too far down the depth chart in the best receiving corp in the league. He only had 14 catches for 133 yards and a couple of touchdowns. The Falcons staff tried using him as a returner he didn’t fair much better there. I look for Justin to be playing elsewhere next year. The production from Hardy doesn’t justify the cost of keeping him around.
I’m on the fence about Marvin. As deep as he was on the depth chart Marvin showed some solid play at times. If Hall doesn’t receive many offers elsewhere Dimitroff may just let him hang around another year.In limited play Marvin had 10 catches for 147 yards and a TD and believing Justin Hardy is gone. Marvin Hall may just be back.
As for the long-snapper Jon Condo. Josh Harris is back so he is gone.
That’s just my take of how this plays out on the offensive side. Thomas Dimitroff is full of surprises so look for 1 or 2 free agents on the offensive line. I’ve got my eye on a couple of guards but unlike Dimitroff I wouldn’t have signed Levitre to begin with.
