The Falcons are adding depth along their offensive line, inking Mike Person (that's his real name) via free agency.
The Falcons have agreed to terms with LB Justin Durant, G Mike Person, LB Brooks Reed and RB Antone Smith #RiseUp— Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) March 10, 2015
Person played in 16 games for the Rams, starting zero. He has experience as a tackle and guard between previous stops with the 49ers, Colts and Seahawks, and right now I'd project him to provide veteran depth for an offensive line making a wholesale transition to zone blocking. At 6'4" and 299 pounds, he doesn't tip the scales but has quailty size and strength. We'll get a better look at him over the summer.
There's an outside chance Person will be competing for a starting gig at left guard, but we're so far away from that being reality I'm going to mention it in passing and then run away from it like a live grenade. If he can back up both guard spots and dabble in tackle, he'll have his uses for Dan Quinn and company.
Welcome to Atlanta, Mike Person.
