Sean Weatherspoon, Stephen Nicholas To Return For Veteran Minicamp

Kevin C. Cox

You never want to hear that two of your veteran linebackers are injured coming into the summer, but both Stephen Nicholas and Sean Weatherspoon had surgery this off-season.

That's not good news, particularly for a team that has struggled with linebacker depth. What is good news is that both 'Spoon and Nicholas are expected to join the Falcons for mini-camp next week, and that they're expected to be fine for the start of the season as long as there are no setbacks.

For a team looking hard at a bunch of recent UDFAs, a 27-year-old linebacker who hasn't played organized football in a decade and Robert James as possibilities to back these guys up, this couldn't be better news.

What kind of seasons are you expecting from Nicholas and Weatherspoon?
