3 Receivers the Atlanta Falcons could add before pre-season
By Nick Halden
The Atlanta Falcons have had a solid off-season that sets up the team to find success in the 2023 season. This off-season has been about cutting cap and bringing in short-term veteran contracts to help make the team watchable this season.
Offensive guard and receiver remain two positions Atlanta could use this approach on before the season kicks off. The Falcons have improved depth at both positions but lack clear proven contributors.
At this point in the off-season, Atlanta isn’t going to sign a top receiver but it wouldn’t be surprising if they opt to bring a veteran in to give Mariota or Ridder a target they know they can count on heading into the season.
The most significant improvement Atlanta found at the receiver position is adding much-needed size and depth. Atlanta was undersized at the receiver position last season a problem that continually showed up and resulted in one of Matt Ryan’s worst seasons in Atlanta.
Learning from their mistakes Atlanta has added a myriad of receivers bringing in Auden Tate, Drake London, Bryan Edwards, Damiere Byrd, and Geronimo Allison as possible contributors.
Despite these additions, Atlanta should still be active in free agency and consider three names in particular who would help improve what looks to be an improved 2022 offense.
