The Atlanta Falcons are entering the final week of cuts as they finalize their roster for week one. This could open the door for Atlanta to sign one of many remaining veteran free agents. Plenty of potential contributors remain unsigned heading into week one of the season.
Atlanta is a team currently stuck neither completely rebuilding nor contending. Their leaders are veterans like Grady Jarrett and Matt Ryan while their roster additions have been young players with upside, not players you add to a contending team.
It is a team who could become a surprise wildcard contender just as easily as they could contend for a top-five pick yet again. Atlanta is never predictable always finding unthinkable ways to lose or winning games they had no business contending in.
Adding veteran free agents could be what changes Atlanta Falcons season
With plenty of talented veteran options remaining unsigned headed into the final week of cuts, Atlanta has a chance to make high-impact moves that could help change the course of their season.
While for many teams it is hard enough to cut their roster down to size much less add free agents to the mix Atlanta is in a unique position. Their roster is very top-heavy with clear starters at key positions and little depth or clarity beyond the starters. Which is a nice way of saying Atlanta will have little problem-making room for any potential free agency additions and they should start with these five.
