2. Trey Flowers
Trey Flowers was a good rotational edge rusher with the Patriots before joining the Detriot Lions and watching his production fall off the map. Flowers has 31.5 career sacks with 21 of those sacks coming in his years with New England. Flowers would fit perfectly in Atlanta giving the team yet another rotational edge rusher one who can offer the knowledge of his experience to a young group of Atlanta edge rushers.
Flowers has 86 career quarterback hits speaking to his ability to impact plays consistently when he is on the field. The biggest question for Flowers at this point in his career is can he stay healthy throughout a full season?
Atlanta should be willing to risk it considering the team’s embarrassing effort at rushing the passer last season. While they have added a number of options in free agency and the draft Flowers is a much-needed veteran and could help Atlanta’s young pass rushers transition to the next level.
