Debate: Who should the Falcons sign in free agency, now that it is days away?

New, comments

Time to dust off your free agent dreams and share them again.

Scott R. Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

Free agency begins in the middle of next week, and we've seen a number of players released over the last several days. That should help you update your free agent wishlist, which you should now share with us one last time before things kick off in earnest.

Knowing what's out there, I'm hoping for the following players:

  • DE Mario Williams
  • WR Travis Benjamin
  • SS George Iloka
  • G Brandon Brooks
  • DE Adrian Clayborn
  • DE/LB O'Brien Schofield
  • LB Nate Stupar
  • C Gino Gradkowski
  • T Jake Long
  • RT Ryan Schraeder
  • FS Ricardo Allen
  • LB Paul Worrilow

This would set up for the Falcons to focus on a linebacker like Alabama's Reggie Ragland or Ohio State's Darron Lee at pick #17, with the ability to select the best player available (within reason) in the second round and beyond. It's not causing you to openly salivate, I expect, but this would be a very solid group of signings for Atlanta, bringing back a few key players while upgrading the pass rush, secondary, offensive line and receiving corps. I'd love to add Trevathan to the list here, but I'm not sure he (or Bruce Irvin, for that matter) are going to fall in the team's price range.

Do us a favor and share your list.
