Falcons 2014 Free Agency Tracker: Day Three

New, comments

We enter the third day of free agency, and most of the best players are off the market. There are still options for the Falcons, but it's anyone's guess how active they will be.

If the Falcons are going to look at free agent options at positions like free safety and defensive end, it would behoove them to either move now or wait for bargains much, much later in free agency, if not the NFL Draft. They've done their early work on the lines, but there's no sense in overpaying for what's left at this point.

Above, our Twitter stream to keep you up-to-date on any major signings.

Talk about the Falcons and free agency right here.
