The first few days are normally extremely uneventful for us, but we can go ahead and discuss here. I'll update the thread with signings and contract amount as they happen.


Falcons 2016 Free Agent Acquisitions:

Alex Mack, C - 5 years, 45 million


Derrick Shelby, DE - 4 years, 18 million


Matt "The Dollar Thief" Schaub, QB - 2 years, 9 million


Mohamed Sanu, WR - 5 years, 32.5 million


Sean Weatherspoon, LB - 1 year, terms not yet disclosed


Courtney Upshaw, OLB - 1 year, terms not yet disclosed

shefty says atlanta and chicago are making the biggest push for trevathan.

also been linked to mack, benjamin/jones, irvin, iloka/nelson.

lots of guys out there who can help this team push for a playoff spot.

mack and either trevathan or irvin would be the ideal signings for us imo.

agreed, plus a wr for me (benjamin, jones, or sanu). iloka would be huge, but i think that's wishing for too much.

i do not wanna see Nelson in a Falcons uni. i dont see him helping this team. Allen played pretty well for us last year. no need to replace him when SS and so many more other positions need to be fixed. i still believe the #2 CB spot is in more need of fixing than our FS spot.

Malik Jackson to the Jags (6 year 90 mil!!) and Mario Williams to the Dolphins as well. Really praying we land Trevathan. Reading that it's between us and the Bears.

Iloka, Trevathan, one of the WRs, and Mack would be great.

Somewhat surprised to see Irvin go to the Raiders. Glad we didn't overpay for him, but he never seemed like an ideal fit for Oakland.. Then again I don't really know a ton about their scheme anyway.

Mario to Miami on just a 2 year deal worth 8 mil per year is criminal. Disappointed we didn't get him, but there are plenty of players left in free agency still at this point.

If we can't land Trevathan give me Jerrell Freeman. He picked me off twice in Madden the other day

Freeman is def a very underrated LB. he would be a great option if Danny T doesnt sign with us. i am also very big on Washingtons LB Keenan Robinson.

Disagree, but I won't spend any time arguing over a guy that now has a 0 percent chance of signing with us.

I wanted a pass rusher in free agency because my favorite DE Dodd is looking more and more likely to be taken by the time we're on the clock. Obviously Lawson is a good option as well, and Ogbah is intriguing. I'm excited to see how we end up addressing the pass rush in the draft.
