In case anyone missed this news, I wanted to give you all a quick update on Kendall Langford.

The Miami Dolphins defensive tackle was at least loosely linked to the Falcons earlier this off-season, but Les Snead and the Rams were willing to give him a nice little contract to slot into their defense. Like the Falcons, the Rams run a 4-3 front, so he'll have to adjust to that. Still, he's a pretty decent option for the team, one I was half-hoping the Falcons would take a run at.

At this point, it's probably fair to expect most of the team's signings to be for backups, a few guys who can compete for starts and special teamers. The Falcon's core has been mostly retained and the Falcons have sought to give their young players some cheap, veteran competition, so I think that's the most logical expectation. Don't get too excited for Kamerion Wimbley, is what i'm saying.

This is a critical year for Peria Jerry, who would cost more to cut than retain and will be asked to finally do something to justify his roster spot. If not, he'll probably be replaced by next year's equivalent of Langford, if not a draft pick.

Discuss Langford and free agency, as always.
