The Falcons may be looking for a new backup safety pretty soon.

James Sanders has lined up what is, to my knowledge, his first visit of the off-season.The Cardinals are perpetually in need of secondary depth, so there's a good chance he'll sign.

Sanders was a perfectly capable backup safety in 2011, creating a few big plays, providing solid play against the run and doing alright against the pass. He was nothing special, no, but he was welcome stability at a position that needed another veteran to back up Thomas DeCoud and William Moore.

If Sanders leaves, the Falcons will either go bargain-bin shopping, draft a young, promising safety or promote Suasei Tuimaunei off the practice squad. Either of the latter would have more upside than Sanders but provide a little more risk.

Since we're talking backups, I hope they go with upside. Where do you think Sanders will end up?
