4 Former Atlanta Falcons teaming up with Tom Brady this season
By Nick Halden
2. Keanu Neal
If there is one Tampa Bay Bucs player Atlanta Falcons fans can find a way to pull for it will be safety Keanu Neal. Neal was a huge part of the Atlanta defense and one of the hardest hitting and most exciting safeties in the game before having back-to-back heartbreaking injuries. Neal managed to get his career back on track after a rough final season with Atlanta Neal switched teams last year switching positions to linebacker as he got back up to the speed of the game with the Cowboys.
Neal is switching back to his more natural position of safety this season and appears to be in line to be a depth piece and limited contributor for Tampa.
Neal’s most memorable seasons for Atlanta were in 2016 and 2017 when he helped push the defense into respectability and Atlanta made the playoffs both seasons. It is often forgotten just how well the defense played during both playoff appearances and Neal was a big part of that.
Keanu at this point in his career is going to be a limited contributor simply looking for a chance to win a ring and rebuild his value at the safety position.
