3 Former Atlanta Falcons still stuck in free agency
By Nick Halden
At this point in the Atlanta Falcons season, the focus has shifted from off-season moves to camp and developing the players on their current roster. Any moves in free agency will likely be for fringe players to fill out the roster and give plenty of depth ahead of Atlanta’s three pre-season games.
For the most part, any players remaining in free agency at this point are veterans mulling their future or players who will have to fight their way onto a roster. There are obvious exceptions with Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones remaining in free agency, however, they are certainly the outliers.
While the Falcons have cap space left to spend it would be surprising to see the team make any noteworthy moves at this point in the season. In a rebuilding year, the team will be focused on adding depth pieces and developing the young players on their roster.
This isn’t the season for Atlanta to make a push to sign any of the remaining top free agents. With over $ 60 million in dead cap space, the Falcons must continue to be patient only signing one-year depth piece deals.
With this in mind, there are three familiar names left in free agency who spent time in Atlanta. Could any of these three players find their way back to the Falcons?
