Don't know if this was posted, but it looks like we're about to sign Marcus Pollard. Saw in the blog section of Falcons Life. Below is a link to the story.

This should give Ryan another target in the passing game. Hopefully we'll get a bit of mileage out of him.

Hopefully he can hold up. I see us drafting a TE early next year.

We should cut him. I'm not impressed if we sign him. If he is dirty cheap, lets see what he has preseason, but I don't think we really need him. Let's sign him DT's or offensive lineman. How many TE's do we need? One from last year, a draft pick, and a FA guy. Seems like enough.

The only thing tthat I can clearly make from this is that he's been playing for a LONG time.

that would be awesome if he signed w/ em. He went to Bradley University and I work as a groundskeeper there, that would be cool if he stopped by campus someitme.

From one Cubs fan to another, love the sig and avatar! I also had a friend go to Bradley.

As for Pollard, when I was looking through his stats I was pleasantly surprised that he's had four 40-catch seasons in the past seven years.

It's a nice move. I don't think Pollard is coming in to make a Pro Bowl for us but I think if he can give us some of his Indianapolis numbers, that would be excellent. I like where TD and Smith's heads are at though. Looks like they're really trying to put forth a good effort to win THIS season. Not 5 years from now as some people think. <_<

Ughhh....Pollard looks done. Maybe he can give us something.

so we released alge to sign an older TE who's only value is as a receiver? i was on board with the move we made because i was under the impression the TE wasnt going to be as heavily utilized. but this looks like we are recognizing a mistake and adding the best receiving TE available, and its not a good one...

hopefully he surprises us but im not holding my breath.

i like this move just for tha fact that im not confident in our tight ends yet. i even feel like we should get a tight end early in next year's draft. Pollard would give us a veteran presence at that position; somebody familiar with reading defenses. not sure about his blocking aspects tho, but a solid pickup either way imb.
