The biggest decision for the Atlanta Falcons this off-season when it comes to their own free agents will be whether or not to bring back Kaleb McGary. The right tackle had his best season at the perfect time and will demand a substantial contract in free agency.
Outside of McGary not one of Atlanta’s pending free agents cannot be easily replaced either in free agency or the first three rounds of the draft. Atlanta’s focus obviously should be on finding a very elusive pass rush and building a complete offense around Desmond Ridder.
Atlanta has an improving secondary and great young pieces on offense. Building a complete team with nearly $70 million in cap space and great draft picks should be accomplishable in a terrible NFC South.
While all of Atlanta’s current free agents outside McGary are replaceable players like Isaiah Oliver and Olamide Zaccheaus are likely going to land back with the team if the market doesn’t pass Atlanta’s comfort zone. While these two players could be obvious bargains to bring back there are three more players that could go overlooked this off-season and could easily be brought back on cheap short-term deals.
