" Dent Truck "
Akeem Dent the 3rd year veteran for the Atlanta falcons is looking to stay on the roster. Coming into the 2014 season Akeem has nothing but competition in front of him in fact so much of it that I think the Atlanta organization forgot that he was still on the team but that's what happens when you beef up the ILB position like Atlanta coaching staff did. Not only do he have Sean Weatherspoon in front of him but he has to worry about beating guys out like Joplo Bartu, Paul Worrilow, Prince Shembo, Marquis Spruill, and even Yawin Smallwood. That's alot of talent in front of a guy who didn't play much doing 2013.
Dent (6' 1") (239 lbs.) is the biggest thumper the falcons have and still has fresh legs but ankle surgery held him back throughout the whole season last season just about. (2013 stats: 51 Tack , 1.5 Sacks).
Akeem is definitely a pass rushing LB with no doubts about it with a +1.1 pass rush percentage but he can improve his run defense i'm not going to post that. Akeem is entering the final year of his contract and if he have a breakout year Atlanta will keep him around for a fair extension but in reality if rookie Prince Shembo out shines him then he'll have to be the one to get the axe I hate to say it because Weatherspoon, Worrilow, and Bartu jobs are pretty much secured because they know Mike Nolan expectations is to the moon with them and the expectations with Dent is ..... Im just hoping he can show out this upcoming season
