Three bold off-season moves for the Atlanta Falcons

1 of 4

After a horrendous start to the season, the Atlanta Falcons ended the year strong and finished 7-9 for the second straight year. The Falcons have had three non-winning seasons under Dan Quinn.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank elected to retain both Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff for at least one more season. With the way things went this season, there’s no doubt this head coach/GM combo has all the pressure in the world entering 2020.

This might very well be the most important offseason the Falcons have had in a long time. The roster is talented, yet the Falcons are not in the playoffs.

Expectations for next season will be astronomical not only because that’s what fans expect but because this is the second or third chance depending on who you ask.

As they always say, desperate times call for desperate measures and you can expect the Atlanta Falcons in the offseason to do some things to improve the team and keep key players on the squad.

Moves will need to be made this offseason and they have to be drastic to the point where some of them might now make any sense now.

The front office did some restructuring of a few contracts and if they were to cut Devonta Freeman, they could free up more space to make the moves and signings necessary to keep this team competitive and even make them better.

Some people might now agree with the moves that will be made in the offseason some of them will be pleasant and others won’t. When you’re in the state that the Falcons are in, you can expect the unexpected.
