Falcons Quote of the Day: Difficult Decisions Ahead

I'm a huge baseball fan. In fact, I was there when Sid slid in 1992. Notwithstanding my love for the game, there's one thing I can't stand: the absence of a salary cap. Luckily [knocks on wood] we don't have to worry about deep-pocketed ownership in the NFL.

But we do have to put the best players on the field - and we only have so much money to do that. Yasinskas wrote about it Friday, and he had this to say:

The rest of the NFC South isn’t in much better shape for 2013 ...

The Falcons have $108.7 million committed to 42 players in 2013. Throw in this year’s rookie class and a possible contract extension for quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons aren’t likely to have much room to work with.

What does it all mean?!?!

If I had to guess, it means there are some tough decisions ahead. There's arguably enough talent on this team to do some damage in the coming years. At the same time, we have to account for regression and lack of progression. It's foolish to assume there won't be some turnover between now and 2014, though it's difficult to imagine who will go and when.

And that's where y'all come in. What tough decisions lie ahead for the Falcons?
