Free agency has begun. For the Atlanta Falcons, this is a prime opportunity to start molding their roster into the fast, physical juggernaut Dan Quinn wants.
Don't expect the Falcons to land the biggest fish on the market. Instead, they'll target second-tier options to bolster their depth, add needed talent to the defense and give them better options at weak positions across the roster, with the rest to come in the 2015 NFL Draft. It should be an active time for the Falcons.
The Falcons have now addressed some key needs with a couple of starters and some quality depth. Tight end, left guard, safety and of course pass rusher remain legitimate needs that need to be filled through free agency, the draft, or b oth.
