  Falcons | Could add Matt Schaub    Fri Mar 27, 12:26 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Schaub (Raiders) could be added by the Atlanta Falcons, as they currently have QBs T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree backing up QB Matt Ryan. New Falcons head coach Dan Quinn didn't rule out signing Schaub, who is familiar with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's systems from his days with the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Schaub was a third-round pick for the Falcons in the 2004 NFL draft. He played three seasons with the Falcons behind QB Michael Vick.

  Falcons | Tony Moeaki signed    Thu Mar 19, 03:22 PM

Free-agent TE Tony Moeaki (Seahawks) signed with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 19. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Moeaki has had some moments but has largely been unimpressive in part because the last two seasons were injury-riddled. He has potential, but he cannot stay on the field (he had this problem in college too). Can he stay healthy? If he can he might be a very productive fantasy TE2 at least. But injuries make him a shaky TE3 at best. He'll split time with Jacob Tamme in 2015.

  Falcons | Atlanta eyeing Devin Funchess    Thu Mar 19, 12:11 PM

Michigan TE Devin Funchess worked out for the Atlanta Falcons this week as the draft approaches. Funchess is projected to be taken in the second round this year, and he has played both tight end and receiver. The Falcons had a league-low 241 yards from the tight end position in 2014, according to ESPN Stats and Information. New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is used to getting plenty of production from his tight ends.

Footballguys view: While they signed Jacob Tamme, he's not a long-term fix. Funchess is a decent tight end prospect in a weak class. As the piece mentions, Shanahan needs a more prolific tight end, and Funchess can catch the ball. He could get a lot of work as a rookie.

  Falcons | Jacob Tamme signs with Atlanta    Thu Mar 19, 10:57 AM

Free-agent TE Jacob Tamme (Broncos) signed an undisclosed deal with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Tamme isn't a long-term answer at the position, but he'll certainly help. Buried behind Julius Thomas in Denver, Tamme might have more left in the tank than some think. The Falcons have been looking for a good tight end since Tony Gonzalez retired, and now they have one. Tamme isn't going to set the world on fire, but he could be a solid TE2 for fantasy owners.

  Falcons | Kroy Biermann re-signed    Wed Mar 18, 04:39 PM

Free-agent DE Kroy Biermann re-signed with the Atlanta Falcons Wednesday, March 18. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Biermann has spent his entire pro career with the Falcons. Last year while coming back from an Achilles' injury, he led the team with 4.5 sacks. The Falcons are re-working their defense, but they decided that Biermann was best kept around.

  Falcons | No deal yet for Rob Housler    Sun Mar 15, 08:44 PM

Free-agent TE Rob Housler (Cardinals) did not immediately agree to terms after meeting with the Atlanta Falcons Friday, March 13.

Footballguys view: Housler has potential as a pro because of his ability as a move tight end. The Falcons could help him unlock that potential.

  Falcons | Rob Housler visits with Atlanta    Fri Mar 13, 05:05 PM

Free-agent TE Rob Housler (Cardinals) met with the Atlanta Falcons Friday, March 13.

Footballguys view: The Falcons could use help at the tight end position as they haven't been the same since Tony Gonzalez retired. Housler has good athleticism, but he's failed to make much of an impact as a pro.

Free-agent LB O'Brien Schofield (Seahawks) signed an undisclosed deal with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: O'Brien Schofield knows coach Dan Quinn from their days in Seattle, and his versatility will help a defensive front desperately trying to rebuild itself after a disastrous 2014.

  Falcons | Phillip Adams agrees    Thu Mar 12, 02:46 PM

Free-agent CB Phillip Adams (Jets) agreed on an undisclosed deal with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 12.

  Falcons | Adrian Clayborn agrees    Thu Mar 12, 02:44 PM

Free-agent DE Adrian Clayborn (Falcons) agreed on an undisclosed deal with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 12.

  Falcons | Leonard Hankerson signs    Wed Mar 11, 03:14 PM

Free-agent WR Leonard Hankerson (Redskins) signed a one-year deal worth $1 million with the Atlanta Falcons Wednesday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Hankerson will battle for a roster spot in a wide receiver corps that was made thinner by the loss of Harry Douglas. He once had promise as a big downfield threat, but injuries kept him from creating any momentum in Washington.

  Falcons | Leonard Hankerson to visit    Tue Mar 10, 09:56 PM

Free-agent WR Leonard Hankerson (Redskins) is visiting with the Atlanta Falcons Tuesday, March 10, although no deal is imminent.

Footballguys view: ZZZZZZ. The move for Hankerson would put anyone to sleep. He's a big, lumbering wideout and would not be a good replacement for Harry Douglas.

  Falcons | Antone Smith re-signs    Tue Mar 10, 08:37 PM

Free-agent RB Antone Smith has re-signed with the Atlanta Falcons. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Falcons | Drew Davis not tendered offer    Tue Mar 10, 06:25 PM

Atlanta Falcons restricted free-agent WR Drew Davis did not receive a tender offer from the team and is now an unrestricted free agent.

Footballguys view: Davis is athletic, but he won't draw much interest on the open market. A return to the Falcons isn't likely, but it's not out of the question either.

  Falcons | Showing interest in Brooks Reed    Tue Mar 10, 10:34 AM

Impending free-agent LB Brooks Reed (Texans) is receiving interest from the Atlanta Falcons and two other teams, according to his agent.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are overhauling their defense this offseason. They needed to in a bad way, and adding a player like Reed would really help. He has a nose for the ball and is always around the play. Reed had six sacks as a rookie, but he's maxed out at three in a season (2014) since then.

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent LB Sean Weatherspoon will be allowed the test the free-agent market and is not expected to re-sign with the Falcons.

Footballguys view: Weatherspoon missed all of last year with a torn Achilles'. At the combine, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff sounded confident the team would bring back Weatherspoon. "Sean Weatherspoon is going to be an important part of building this defense and building this team." Dimtroff emphasized. Something must have changed between now and then.

  Falcons | Atlanta interested in Niles Paul?    Tue Mar 3, 02:07 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Niles Paul figures to draw interest from the Atlanta Falcons once the free agency period begins.

Footballguys view: This is a less expensive option than Julius Thomas. Paul is familiar with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme and TE Levine Toilolo hasn't exactly proven himself to be the answer at the position. If healthy, we'd love Paul in a passing game that already features WRs Julio Jones and Roddy White.

  Falcons | Jonathan Massaquoi waived    Fri Feb 27, 05:20 PM

Atlanta Falcons DE Jonathan Massaquoi was waived Friday, Feb. 27.

  Falcons | Justin Blalock cut    Fri Feb 27, 02:13 PM

Atlanta Falcons OT Justin Blalock was released Thursday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: Another salary-cap move by the Falcons here. Blalock started 125 games over eight seasons, and he should attract some interest on the open market. He's a powerful road-grader who was not a good fit for Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme.

  Falcons | Devonta Freeman to be full-time back?    Fri Feb 27, 02:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman could be the full-time back in new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme next season, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff. 'My first impression of him is that you can feel the quickness. In our outside-zone-system, I feel like this is tailor-made for a guy who can really explode off the edge,' head coach Dan Quinn said.

Footballguys view: Freeman is a FANTASTIC fit for the Kyle Shanahan offense. He's built low to the ground, and he can change direction instantly without losing much speed. Freeman could perform like a top-20 fantasy RB in 2015 with the lead role.

  Falcons | Harry Douglas released by Atlanta    Fri Feb 27, 10:26 AM

Atlanta Falcons WR Harry Douglas was released Friday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: A bruised foot in 2014 slowed Douglas down last year, and he played in a career-low 12 games. Douglas finished with 51 catches, 556 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Some teams should be interested in the veteran receiver.

  Falcons | Antone Smith coming back to Atlanta?    Thu Feb 26, 07:49 PM

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent RB Antone Smith is a priority for the team to re-sign this offseason, but the Falcons could add another running back in free agency instead.

Footballguys view: We like the Falcons potentially bringing back Smith. He's been hanging around with the Falcons for some time since coming out of Florida State in 2009 as an undrafted free agent. He had a career-high five touchdowns in 2014 before a broken leg suffered covering a punt ended his season.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson to be cut    Thu Feb 26, 07:23 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson will reportedly be released Friday, Feb. 27.

Footballguys view: This move has been anticipated for some time. Jackson's not the same player he used to be, and signing him has been a disappointing move for the Falcons. This move will clear $3.75 million in cap space for the team. Jackson still believes that he's got 1,000-yard seasons left in his legs. His recent play says otherwise.

  Falcons | Bear Pascoe moving on    Thu Feb 26, 07:33 AM

Free-agent TE Bear Pascoe (Falcons) is moving on from the Atlanta Falcons and checking out other options, according to Pascoe's agent.

Footballguys view: Teams in need of a behemoth who can block will be looking at the former Rodeo champion. Pascoe isn't much of a receiver, but he has the size and nastiness to be a dominant blocker. A team like the Broncos could have interest.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett is of high interest to the Atlanta Falcons if he reaches free agency.

Footballguys view: Forsett is going to get some interest on the open market after his 1,000-yard season with the Ravens last year. The Falcons added Kyle Shanahan as their offensive coordinator this year. Forsett and Shanahan spent time together in Houston when they were both with the Texans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent LB Mason Foster is expected to draw interest from the Atlanta Falcons. Assistant head coach Raheem Morris drafted Foster when he was head coach with the Buccaneeers.

Footballguys view: Foster does a good job of finding the ball-carrier as the plays unfold in front of him. He could be a tackling machine for head coach Dan Quinn and the new-look Falcons defense.

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent SS Dwight Lowery has left all negotiations with the team up to his agent, and the two sides were expected to meet Sunday, Feb. 22.

Footballguys view: Quinn's praise holds a lot of weight around the league. The Falcons new head coach should be able to help this defense play better in 2015. Quinn mentioned how he likes Lowery's versatility, and he had Lowery as a player when he was a coach with the New York Jets.

  Falcons | Keeping an eye on Jason Pierre-Paul    Sun Feb 22, 07:32 AM

Free-agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants) may be pursued by the Atlanta Falcons if he hits free agency.

Footballguys view: The Falcons need to do anything they possibly can to improve their pass rush in 2015. Adding Pierre-Paul would be part of the answer. Pierre-Paul is talented, but his career has been set back by injuries. He's entering free agency on a high note after compiling 12.5 sacks in 2014.

New York Jets impending free-agent LB David Harris is expected to receive interest from the Atlanta Falcons if he hits the free-agent market, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets might be interested in bringing Harris back if the price is right, but he isn't worth the money on a huge contract. Atlanta is looking to reboot their defense again, and Harris could at least be a solid rotational player for them.
