3. Any receiver who isn’t Drake London
What was so mind-numbing about Matt Ryan’s final season with the Atlanta Falcons was what the veteran managed to do with so little around him. There was a point in the season where Ryan’s primary receiver was Tajae Sharpe when Russell Gage wasn’t completely healthy.
This season the production slightly improved but only due to Drake London. Bryan Edwards was a bust and Atlanta’s free agency additions failed to make an impact for Mariota or Ridder. If the Falcons are serious about moving forward with Ridder this is a position that must have at least two high-impact additions this off-season.
Olamide Zaccheaus could be brought back if the contract is reasonable and allows Atlanta to use Olamide as a third or fourth option. Atlanta needs to take some of the pressure off both London and Ridder bringing in a veteran and a second option to change a position that has rivaled Atlanta’s pass rushers as the worst group on the roster.
