The Atlanta Falcons shouldn’t make any big moves at the trade deadline
It doesn’t make sense for the Atlanta Falcons to make moves by tomorrow’s trade deadline.
The Atlanta Falcons with all the talent on their roster have found a way to hobble to a 2-6 record. Fans want to see the Falcons make some trades to get better players, but don’t be surprised if they don’t make any trades at all.
The Falcons just cleaned out the front office by getting rid of general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Dan Quinn. It makes no sense to bring in legit talent with an interim head coach and no GM.
The only way it would make sense for the Falcons to bring someone is if they had intentions to keep Raheem Morris as the head coach.
No matter what the Atlanta Falcons record shows, this isn’t a team that needs to undergo a complete rebuild. There’s no need to trade your best players in order to tank. They’re doing that already and projected to have the fourth overall pick at this point in the season.
The Atlanta Falcons definitely have some tradeable pieces.
When I saw big moves, I am talking about pieces that should be in the long-term plans – Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Grady Jarrett, Hayden Hurst, Calvin Ridley, Deion Jones, and about four or five other players on this roster.
The Falcons are shopping guys like Takk McKinley and a couple of others that they don’t feel are in the franchise’s best interest to keep, regardless of who is in charge.
They also might make a few moves to get rid of some veterans like Alex Mack or Ricardo Allen to get more draft capital. If you think the Falcons are gonna make a big move to bring in someone like Stephon Gilmore, don’t get your hopes up.
Don’t expect the Atlanta Falcons to trade none of their big names to facilitate the rebuild that most of the fans want.
The Falcons should be 5-3 right now and fighting for a playoff spot. Only then would it make sense for this team to go out ad acquire some pieces to help take this team over the top.
Finish the 2020 season out and get whatever draft pick you to end up with and go from there, it makes no sense to make any trades to improve this team. Allow the new leadership that is hired over the next 60 to 90 days to make the moves they see fit in order to become a contender again.
