Will the Falcons Add a Free Agent Linebacker?

Fact: D Block misses Peterson

DOL breaks down the free agent linebacker options. And to be honest, Mike Peterson does seem like the best option.

With the pectoral injury to Lofa Tatupu and the release of Matt Hansen, the Falcons are back in the linebacker market before the start of training camp on Thursday.

The extent of Tatupu’s injury will be known after a visit to specialist Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

The group of available veteran linebackers includes a couple of familiar names in Mike Peterson and Keith Brooking. Peterson is the logical choice to return, since the present regime elected not to re-sign Brooking.

Channing Crowder, E.J. Henderson, and Gary Brackett are the other names on DOL's shortlist. My personal preference? Peterson. He's a solid, veteran option. He played in a Mike Nolan defense, though it was almost a decade ago. Long story short, there aren't many options, and he may be the best option available.
