Alford is scheduled to be a free agent in March. I'm wondering how good you Falcon fans think he is?
Do the majority of you hope he re-signs with Atlanta?
Or is he a fairly replaceable player if he wants a ton of money?

Hes a good player for sure, but he gets a lot of raw deals. Hes a very physical corner, and I think that leaves him prone to having more flags thrown on him. A ton of the penalties called against him are ridiculously questionable and seriously make me question the league at times. I don't know if his physical playing style has earned him a reputation around the league, and thus a bias from the refs. But he is a quality player for sure. I'd pay him 5 mil a year no problem.

He is most definitely replaceable if he wants a ton of money.

Alford is a bit of a strange case imo. He's got all the physical tools and speed to be a great corner. The problem seems to be that often he doesn't trust himself/his technique enough and he starts to grab. The amount of PI calls he's been drawing since his rookie year have been pretty staggering. I think the Falcons are going to give him an offer that he'll think is too low, then some team that thinks they can coach him is going to pay big bucks for him only to be dissapointed.

I think he will be replacable. TD has a pretty good record of drafting/trading for/spending on CB's.

Never seen someone complain about not getting calls so much in my whole life. He's a decent corner.
