The Atlanta Falcons obviously had a specific strategy in mind as they headed into free agency. For those of us not employed by Arthur Blank, that strategy is still a mystery. But while I'm still totally lost when it comes to the revamping of the linebacker corps, there's a couple signees the fan base seems to be universally thrilled about.
Earlier today, those two fan favorites, center Alex Mack and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, officially picked their numbers.
I know what you're thinking: "but Spoon is number 56!" Well never fear, because in comes Brooks Reed. Reed, for a price we can only speculate about, apparently decided he'd hand over number 56.
Lol I love my tweeps Brooks let me get 56 back! Real one!— Sean Weatherspoon (@SeanWSpoon56) March 21, 2016
So there you have it. These guys really are Falcons. You weren't dreaming. Carry on, everyone.
