The Atlanta Falcons are slated to have an extra 10.75 million dollars in cap space after the cut Desmond Trufant and designated him as their post-June 1st cut.

The Atlanta Falcons could bring in some good talent, especially guys who are willing to sign a one year deal to help improve their free agency status for next year with a solid season this year.

They have a very talented secondary with the likes of Keanu Neal, Damontae Kazee, and the young trio of cornerbacks A.J. Terrell, Kendall Sheffield, and Isaiah Oliver. While that trio of cornerbacks is indeed very talented, a veteran signing would be very beneficial to the development of those guys and the Falcons wouldn’t need to break the bank in order to bring one in.

Aqib Talib and Tramon Williams are in the twilight of their careers and both of them have experienced success in the NFL and at one point in time. Having that kind of presence around those young guys could do wonders for their development.

Coming into last season, many expected for the offensive line to be much improved but then the injury bug happened. Both Kaleb McGary and Chris Lindstrom missed time last year and anytime you bring in young players, playing time and experience is the best teacher.

The offensive line is once again looking good but this time the Falcons need to be prepared. While a signing like Jason Peters would-be nice for a one-year rental, his price tag might be out of the Falcons range.

Cordy Glenn could be brought in at a cheaper price as well as someone like Mike Person who played for the 49ers last year and was an integral part of the successful running game they had in San Francisco.

light. Trending. Will Julio Jones lead the league in receiving yards in 2020?

The Falcons should look to add some depth to the linebacking core of the team. Klay Matthews would be a great situational pass rusher for the team. Darron Lee is a young linebacker the Falcons could bring in and help develop to possibly play with Deion Jones.
