An Irresponsibly Early Look At The Atlanta Falcons 53 Man Roster

New, comments

These are the doldrums of the NFL off-season.

The sunshine seems gray and weak, the grass as scraggly as Kerry Meier's mustache, and the birds are all singing power ballads. It's a time when my admittedly rabid baseball fandom is the only thing keeping me from crawling along the ground, whimpering like a man lost in the desert. Woe and such!

So to keep my mind razor sharp, I insist on putting together exercises like this one. I have literally a one in a million shot of getting the final 53 man roster right, but it's fun to try and look ahead. Chances are you'll enjoy discussing it, too. Rather than bogging down further thanks to my verbose ways, jump to check out my first crack at a final roster. You'll be glad you did.
