Who Stays, Who Goes, and Whose Future is in Doubt for the Falcons

By Matt Karoly

With the Falcons roster seemingly set for 2018, now’s as good a time as any to step into the future and examine how this organization plans to keep the machine rolling. By my estimation, Atlanta will have $148.5 million committed to 30 players that I’ve deemed to be safe roster bets in 2019.

If you haven’t heard, the Atlanta Falcons offense is, by some awful turn of chance, not doing so well right now.

They’ve been on the decline each and every week since their Packers victory (which feels like eons ago), and now they’ve been reduced to a shell of their former selves, with OC Steve Sarkisian taking the brunt of the criticism for stunting a once-historic offense. Continue reading

Looking at the Falcons’ Offensive and Defensive Woes After 5 Games

By Cory Woodroof

The Falcons’ 2014 round pick, the ferocious ball carrier, the down-to-Earth bulldozer who came out swinging at Jerryworld and never looked back – Freeman got paid today, and he earned every cent of it.

The Falcons signed the RB Freeman to a five-year extension, worth $41 million dollars (including $22 million of it guaranteed as he signed the dotted line). The extension comes just as Freeman prepares to head to Miami for a preseason matchup against the Dolphins. Continue reading
