1. DeSean Jackson
If there is one issue to be found with Atlanta’s current group of pass-catchers it is their lack of a clear deep threat. Kyle Pitts and Drake London both are capable of catching the deep ball but neither is going to get catch a defense off-guard. Atlanta needs a player who can create havoc if ignored much like they had in Taylor Gabriel during the 2016 season.
DeSean Jackson might be an older player but he has shown he is still more than capable of breaking the deep play if he is ignored. Still in free agency with much better receivers ahead of him still looking for jobs Jackson would likely sign with Atlanta for a bargain price.
Jackson at this point isn’t an every-down receiver rather, a player Atlanta can use sparingly to attempt to open up the deep ball and give their young receivers a veteran capable of mentoring an inexperienced group. Jackson is coming off of a season where he spent time with the Raiders and Rams failing to make a huge impact in either location.
However, he did manage to catch more than one deep ball with each team reminding the league he is still more than capable of hurting a defense when given the chance.
