Falcons: Deciding which offensive free agents should re-sign or walk
Elijah Wilkinson, OG, Atlanta Falcons
First up we have the Atlanta Falcons’ opening day starter at left guard—Elijah Wilkinson. Wilkinson was a solid, not great, option at left guard, and then he got injured for a large portion of the season.
From there, the position became a revolving door of ineffective play or injuries. Wilkinson came back to play the final two games.
Despite the instability following his injury, he isn’t a free agent the Falcons will be clamoring to bring back. He is solid but isn’t the long-term answer. Possibly he comes back on a cheap deal, even then, the team will probably look elsewhere for a starter.
Colby Gossett, OG, Atlanta Falcons
Not to be rude but this seems like a pretty easy decision. Colby Gossett replaced Elijah Wilkinson but it didn’t take long before the coaches looked elsewhere. He was quite bad in weeks 12 and 13. There isn’t much reason to re-sign him.
