have the rest of free agency and the NFL Draft to fill the holes on their defense. The Atlanta Falcons just like every other team in the NFL have holes on their roster and they are going to be looking to Free Agency to fill some of the needs, but head trigger man Thomas Dimitroff has already said that the Falcons will not be major players in Free Agency this 2009 offseason despite being heavily under the cap. The Falcons front office was not one of the teams that made a big splash to open up Free Agency like the Washington Redskins who stole all the possible headlines with 2 mega contracts being handed out within the first 8 hours of Free Agency. The Falcons decided to play it cool and under the radar picking up an additional target for soon to be Sophomore QB Matt Ryan, former Eagles Tight End LJ Smith. This move was not one that was popular amongst the fans who were craving an Albert Haynesworth type signing by the Falcons. But if there is anything that Thomas Dimitroff knows is that Rome wasn't built in a day. He helped cultivate one of the most successful drafting teams in the NFL, while not always picking up big name home run threats, they built by being better at every position rather than having an elite few dragging others along. Dimitroff and company certainly are not done addressing needs in Free Agency, but don't expect the Falcons to bring in a blockbuster contract like Michael Turner last year. The Falcons organization spent a lot of time scouting Defensive backs at the NFL combine that completed earlier this week. They are looking to upgrade a defense that just lost five of its starters from a team that managed one of the best turnarounds in NFL history last season as they made it to the playoffs under first year QB Matt Ryan. So rest assured that the Falcons know they have holes on defense to fill, but with a draft rich in Defensive Backs that fit Atlanta's cover 2 system beautifully, and linebackers a plenty at the top of this year's draft there is no reason for the Falcon Faithful to lose hope. The organization has a great front office in place and they're looking to keep their jobs for a long time no doubt. So look for cunning moves by the front office and watch for some more under the radar type guys to fill out the roster before the Draft this April, allowing the Falcons to be players in the draft, and continue their newly found success from last season.
