Falcons restructure Jake Matthews’ contract

In an effort to clear some cap space for the coming free-agent period, the Falcons are seeking any creative avenue they can. Over the weekend they restructured left tackle Jake Matthews’ contract, converting his $13 million base salary into a signing bonus.

They’re within striking distance of getting under the cap number, but there are likely more restructures and contract maneuvering forthcoming.

TE Jaeden Graham re-signed

Tight end is a position that Atlanta may address in either free agency or the draft — or both, but they’ve already made a move to keep one of their younger players at the position on the squad by signing Jaeden Graham to a one-year deal.

A look at the roster

Free agency kicks off on Wednesday, so in preparation for that we took one final look at the Falcons’ roster and keyed in on some areas that warrant improvement and additions.

Cornerback targets

In his latest video on free agency, our Kevin Knight explored the options at cornerback — a position that Atlanta is expected to address during the free-agent period.
