Summary

If money talks, then the Falcons said loud and clear what they think of Brooks Reed when they handed him a five-year, $22m contract this offseason. Perhaps his greatest asset to this defense will be his versatility; during his career he has played both inside and outside linebacker, an aspect of his game sure to endear him to new head coach Dan Quinn. A solid run defender, Reed should be a featured piece and could be a three-down player. He is a solid LB4 with upside if he can secure work on passing downs as a designated pass rusher. (April 27)
