3. Javon Hargrave, DT, Philadelphia Eagles
The Atlanta Falcons need to find defensive linemen and edge rushers in the worst way possible. Unfortunately, it is slim pickings at edge rusher this offseason, so they might need to just hone in on some interior linemen. The two big-time free agents on the defensive line are Javon Hargrave and Daron Payne.
Javon Hargrave is a monster, especially as a pass rusher. If you put Hargrave next to Grady Jarrett, then you have a terrifying duo. You can also throw in Ta’Quon Graham as well.
The cost to bring in Hargrave, much like Bradberry, might scare some fans away as he is valued at three years, $60.5 million ($20.1 million per year).
This means that Terry Fontenot has a choice to make, does he want to pay two cornerbacks nearly $40 million (Terrell & Bradberry), or does he want to pay two defensive tackles nearly $40 million (Jarrett & Hargrave). With such a horrible track record finding defensive linemen, my vote would be throwing the cash at the defensive tackles.
