2017 Atlanta Falcons free agency primer and signing tracker

New, comments

Free agency is going strong, and we’ll be keeping up with everything here.

NFL: Super Bowl LI-City Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons will not be—and have not been—one of the big players in free agency this year. Instead, they’ll look to fill a couple of holes with mid-tiered free agents and acquire useful depth ahead of the draft, locking down their own top priority free agents. They’ve got Matt Schaub under contract already, while they lost fullback Patrick DiMarco to Buffalo. Expect a lot more signings, re-signings, and lost free agents in the hours and days ahead.

We’ll keep track of the signings here, update this often, and discuss new signings in new stories. Bookmark this page and join us on a free agency journey, starting this afternoon.
