Atlanta Falcons: A Quick Peek at Free Agency
Grady Jarrett- DT
I said I wasn’t gonna spend time on Grady as I foresee him being resigned to the team. I do however want to mention His father Jessie Tuggle is in the Atlanta Falcons “Ring of Honor”. I fully expect, with the way Grady is playing that if he continues with the same heart and desire in his game as Jessie Tuggle did. Then Grady Jarrett will join his father in ” The Ring”
Terrell McClain DT
Terrell didn’t have a very productive season for the Falcons. He was outplayed by the rookie Deadrin Senat this past season. He may be kept on for his veteran presence but I don’t think he comes back this season. With all indications Atlanta is going to draft another DT with a high draft pick. McClain is probably playing somewhere else.
Bruce Irvin DE
Bruce came to the Falcons late this past season. He still managed 3.5 sacks this year. Seeing that he took less money to play in Atlanta, Dimitroff is going to resign him. Remember I said this “With a full off-season with the Falcons organization I fully expect him to a terror on opposing Quarterbacks and he will have at least 10 sacks for Atlanta year.
Derrick had an injury plagued season last year. With very little production from Shelby The Falcons should be looking at other options in free agency and the draft but could still call him up late if they need more depth at the DE position.
