Falcons: Deciding which offensive free agents should re-sign or walk
Anthony Firkser, TE, Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons did not get the production they were expecting from the tight end position. It is an underrated need (even with a healthy Kyle Pitts) for them this offseason.
Anthony Firkser did not make a big impact as he only played 148 snaps and had a six-week lull of not playing a single snap. Needless to say, there were other options the team looked to first which doesn’t bode well for Firkser. I personally don’t see a reason to bring him back.
Mycole Pruitt, TE, Atlanta Falcons
If the Falcons are going to bring back one of these tight ends, it will likely be Mycole Pruitt. Pruitt was the better pass catcher and had a respectable four touchdowns.
Their 2023 group of tight ends will be headlined by Kyle Pitts but it will be interesting to see who sits behind him. Will we see more of Parker Hesse? Will John FitzPatrick play at all? Those questions will determine whether Pruitt returns or not. At the very least, he would be good competition in training camp.
