We are hours away from the start of free agency, which means it’s time to get in your predictions now, before the Falcons laugh in your face and do something else entirely.

Based on what we know to this point, here’s my prediction for how free agency will proceed.

  • The Falcons sign Nick Mangold to play guard
  • The Falcons sign Dontari Poe at defensive tackle
  • The Falcons sign linebacker Gerald Hodges
  • The Falcons sign safety/cornerback/returner Micah Hyde
  • The Falcons re-sign Kemal Ishmael, Levine Toilolo, Dwight Freeney, and Aldrick Robinson, plus their RFAs/ERFAs

That’s it. The Falcons would get a stopgap starting guard option, a very strong run defender at defensive tackle, and a couple of interesting reserve/part-time starters at linebacker and safety. They bring back a few key free agents of their own along the way, and then they can turn their focus to the lines in the draft.
