Who will be the signing of the offseason for the Falcons?

The Falcons made wholesale changes to their roster in the 2015 offseason. Who will pay off?

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons essentially transformed their linebacker corps in 2015, and made several other major changes to their roster along the way. Considering likely 2015 impacts, who will be the team's best free agent signing?

Organized team activities are giving us a slight notion as to where these guys are going to play and what their roles may be, which helps us answer a question like this. There are a ton of complementary pieces in this class and only a couple of true, full-time starters, but potential impacts abound. Jacob Tamme is a potential starting option at tight end, Brooks Reed should be the team's starting strong side linebacker and Justin Durant has a history of being a terrific player when healthy.

Here's a list of all the team's signings that were not re-signings, in case you forgot any:

WR Leonard Hankerson
TE Jacob Tamme
TE Tony Moeaki
G Mike Person
DE Adrian Clayborn
DE O'Brien Schofield
LB Brooks Reed
LB Justin Durant
CB Phillip Adams

I'm not including draft picks or re-signings, in order to thin out the pool of available candidates, but I'm sure you all can find a player you like in the mix. Share your pick for best free agent signing with us in the comments.
