Thoughts on free-agency eve
by Omid Alaee
This offseason the Atlanta Falcons need to make a few moves within the draft and free agency, which begins Tuesday March 11, 2014 at 4pm, if they want to continue their success like the past few seasons.
As we saw from this past season, besides the injuries, offensive line and defensive line were two factors for the abysmal season. Matt Ryan had a hard time staying off his ass and our D-line could hardly pressure the opposing QB.
To have a successful NFL team, those are two key positions where you can build around. This year’s free agency and NFL draft have quite the talent on both sides of the line.
You got youngsters like Greg Robinson out of Auburn, Jake Matthews of Texas A&M and Jadeveon Clowney from University of South Carolina. Then of course you got the veterans who are in free agency that could be that missing piece that the team needs.
There are 31 other teams trying to make moves to better their futures just like the Falcons. So hopefully the upper management is able to evaluate the right talent and spend the right kind of money on veterans who want to come and work hard and WIN a Super Bowl.
