As another disappointing Atlanta Falcons season comes to an end on Sunday attention will turn to the draft and Atlanta in free agency. The Falcons will have over $70-million in cap space to make moves in free agency and the benefit of yet another top-ten pick in this year’s draft.
Atlanta could choose to address pass rusher, receiver, quarterback, or bring in some help in the secondary for A.J. Terrell. For as much cap space as Atlanta has they lack a starting quarterback or depth at nearly every position except for running back.
They will have an impressive number of weapons locked up with Tyler Allgeier, Drake London, and Kyle Pitts still all on their rookie deals. Utility player Cordarrelle Patterson is locked up for another year in Atlanta as well.
While this is a good base from which to build the offense there are still a number of positions the Falcons need to address starting with making Atlanta a more attractive landing spot for this off-season’s top quarterbacks.
