2. Robert Tonyan Jr..
Tonyan proved what he is capable of as a pass catcher in the 2020 season hauling in 52 catches for 586 receiving yards. The next two seasons, however, have been far less productive with Tonyan failing to reach 100 yards and serving as little more than a blocker and occasional surprise target.
Atlanta needs to add a traditional tight end behind Kyle Pitts one that fits with Kyle on the field at the same time and allows Pitts to focus on what he does best. Tonyan fits that description perfectly and could prove to be a bargain signing.
A one-year prove-it deal for Tonyan in the $4-6 million range seems likely for a player who is two years removed from making an impact in the passing game. Desmond Ridder showed in his first four games a trend of targeting Atlanta’s tight ends despite not having Kyle Pitts. Atlanta needs to add depth to the position and signing Tonyan and bringing MyCole Pruitt back would suffice.
