3 Atlanta Falcons the team must re-sign in 2023
3. Olamide Zaccheaus
Olamide has quietly had one of the most impressive seasons on the Atlanta roster. He has already set career highs in receptions, yards, and games started. While he shouldn’t be a top option for Atlanta next season he has more than proven he is capable of filling a contributing role.
Atlanta should attempt to bring back Olamide as their third or fourth option bringing in veteran receivers to help Desmond Ridder or whoever the starting Atlanta Falcons quarterback will be next season.
Olamide has overachieved leaving slight concern that he could be overpaid (Russell Gage last off-season) leaving the Falcons looking for options outside of Drake London at receiver. There should be no question the priorities of the Atlanta off-season when it comes to position groups is improving their pass rushers and bringing in receivers other than Drake London who are capable of making plays. Olamide would help push the Falcons in the right direction, however, the team shouldn’t be willing to overpay considering the receiver depth in both free agency and the upcoming draft.
