FalconsManhood Posted February 14, 2012 Share Posted February 14, 2012 (edited) The Falcons need to avoid resigning some of thier average players and bring in a guy like Mario Williams. It is not often that you get a shot at arguabley the best DE in the league in FA in the prime of his career.Yes we would break the bank on Mario, but my thought process is that when you draft a player (Jammaal Anderson) you want him to turn into the best DE in the league don't you?If that's the case why not sign the guy who is only 26, replaces our over-rated DE who cannot get sacks when it really counts, is a specialist at this point.If we had drafted Mario instead of Jammal Anderson we wouldn't think twice about this resign, but the difference in this move is your getting a player in his prime who is one of the best in the league, could be the next Reggie White type signing.Pay the man, and if needed let Grimes, Lofton and Abe go. These 3 couldn't get us a playoff win, time to try something different and the lines is where you want your elite talent as they can impact every aspect of the game. (Run and Pass). a dominant DE is hard to find in the draft, but you can always find a MLB and CB. Just look at some of the recent drafts at MLB and CB who were had in the 2nd rnd just like Lofton, Grimes was undrafted.Not to mention Dent, Chris Owens, Dominique Franks waiting in the wings. That is 2 3rd rounders and a 5th rounder just riding the bench. If TD is so great as everyone else claims then we should already be set with replacements for these players.Opinions?
