RedandBlack4ever reacted to vel in Hageman returns
Exactly. Shede has legit SDE potential. We all saw what he did in the 2016 playoffs. If he's anywhere close to that, let's roll. People acting like him being out of football for two years is some death sentence. Vic's been in the league those same two years and gotten progressively worse. Means nothing.

Dan Quinn on bringing back DT Ra'Shede Hageman after releasing him in 2017 following domestic violence charges: ``Ra'Shede has taken responsibility for his actions and continues to show genuine remorse s well as an ongoing commitment to getting better.'' Falcons add depth at DT after adding Tyeler Davison.

My guess is Shede is ready to play some serious football. I doubt Quinn and TD would've brought him back if they weren't convinced he's someone we can count on to be an impact player again. I'm happy for him and looking forward to watching him get after people.

The Lamb/Aints/Ref thing is HILARIOUS

Feel like it isn't often our media folks turn out quality stuff like this so I just had to share. It's amazing. Every second. Especially the Ram running over the Saint in front of the ref.
Well done...you have my admiration.
RedandBlack4ever reacted to TSprings in Mr. Wilson just got paid
Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson are very different. Would Ryan succeed in Seattle’s system, no. Would Wilson be as good as Ryan in our system no.
Wilson may have a higher floor with a terrible o-line, but Matt Ryan is still a better quarterback. And saying that you’d pay 35 for Wilson over 30 for Ryan is popostrous.

I thought folks wanted depth?
Now when we sign guys for exactly that we're unhappy? Maybe some of these guys get a starting gig but the majority are to provide quality depth. Something we sorely lacked last year. I think it's a good thing.

The Falcons Front Office is teetering dangerously close to really impressing me this off-season. With not a lot of cap space they re-signed key players (with maybe one exception – Schaub), and they have wisely and frugally gone out and addressed several positional needs in free agency.
LB - Bruce Carter
DE - Steven Means
LT - Ty Sambrailo
CB - Blidi Wreh-Wilson
QB – Matt Schaub
TE – Logan Paulsen
WR – Justin Hardy
LB – Kemal Ishmael
** DT – Grady Jarrett in contract extension negotiations
** WR – Julio Jones in contract extension negotiations
** LB – Deion Jones in contract extension negotiations
OG – Jamon Brown
OG – James Carpenter
TE/FB/HB – Luke Stocker
RB/KR – Kenjon Barner
OG – Adam Gettis
DE – Adrian Clayborn
S – Afolabi Laguda
S – Chris Cooper
DT – Tyeler Davison
DE – Chris Odom
OT – John Wetzel
I still believe they get contract extensions on at least Julio and Deion, and I’m holding out hope for Grady. But I am impressed at what the Falcons have done and the effort they have put into this off-season. We are approaching the draft in much better shape than I thought we would be.
RedandBlack4ever reacted to Ezekiel 25:17 in Falcons not operating like they have 9 draft picks
It seems like these moves are opening up a lot of opportunities to go in several different directions and not have us locked into any one move.
i like it!

I started a post yesterday in this topic. Absolutely not room right now for 9 draft picks and we are still bringing players in for workouts.
We have two players coming in tomorrow for workouts. Former Patriots swing OT John and a DE.
I could see a situation where we still have a 1st rounder and also end up with three 2nd round picks, trading away some of the 4th, 5th , 6th or 7th rounders to get less picks, but higher quality ones.

Agree. This is going to be the most interesting draft the Falcons will have had up until this point other than their very first.
RedandBlack4ever reacted to KCartledge85 in Falcons not operating like they have 9 draft picks
Falcons have been signing players like crazy lately with no players being released. The Falcons simply are not operating like they are about to add 9 rookies to the club.
It feels like two things could happen ...
1 - Trade up from 14 to add one of the premier defensive lineman.
2 - Trade back from 14 to add extra picks, then trade back into the first round to get two picks in the 20s.
The draft could be fascinating.
