Hopefully he was right about us being a good RB from a Superbowl.

If this gets confirmed it'll be huge, assuming we got him for cheap.
Still, would love it if we nabbed Franklin in the 3rd.

Hopefully now we can focus on getting Grimes back and signing/drafting some DEs

It looks like this draft is going to be heavy on the Defensive side of the ball. Maybe a WR and RB later in the draft. TE and OL are the only offensive players I could see being draft in early rounds.

Hopefully we sign Seymour. Then our draft can really focus on speed at LB, pass rushers (either at DT or DE), and a CB.
Anyone know the Grimes situation?

Excited if the contract is healthy. Should definitely give us a presence in the run game again.

I still think Seymour has something in the tank but I would only like that signing if it came really cheap. I hope we can get Grimes but I'd love to get Osi in here and then we draft a DE and DT in the first 2 rounds. Or even trade back to get more depth picks in the 2nd.

I think you can tell I'm excited. Mr. Green

Now let's bring Grimes back and get some pass rush in the draft. SO PUMPED!!!

(Also still think we need to shore up our O-Line somehow)

Thank you based god. This offense is going to explode. Jackson ran against eight in the box all day in St. Louis and was still a beast, just imagine what he is going to do in Atlanta with the passing attack to take pressure off him. Not only is it a win for the Falcons, it's a win just knowing he won't be in Green Bay. Love this move, no matter the numbers (to a certain degree).
