The Axe Is Coming, But Which Falcons Will It Fall Upon?

We talked about the coming cuts a couple of months ago. At the time, we guessed everyone from Sam Baker to Ovie Mughelli. Now we have a little more clarity.

Thanks to the draft, we now know that there will be young, rookie competition for right guard/center, fullback, defensive end, safety, defensive tackle and possibly left tackle. While not all of those players will be gunning for a starting job, they will be pushing hard for roster spots.

And the Falcons will make corresponding moves. At this point, I expect Ovie Mughelli to be a cap casualty. I also expect more than one offensive lineman to get the axe. You can pretty much expect that one defensive end or linebacker will get the boot to make way for Jonathan Massaquoi, too.

But hey, don't let me tell you what's going to happen. That's why I created this post, after all. I'd like you to take your best shot.

Your call.
