So basically 20 teams got new players. But even that isn't true when multiple players went to the same team. So less than half of the NFL was "active" in FA during the first 24 hours. I guess those other 16+ teams are doomed for 8-8 seasons because they didn't run out and pay an overpriced player. I guess calculated decisions should be shunned during the first 24 hours for fan appeasement.

The Falcons had 16 Free agents not including RFA or ERFA, which all have signed afaik.

Grimes was franchised.

Bierman, Decoud, Douglas, Snelling, and Redman have resigned.

Tatupu replaces Lofton or Peterson.

Manuwi replaces Hawley at RG, who moves to Center and replaces Romberg essentially.

That leaves 8 players/spots remaining to fill.

Abraham, Mcclure, Weems, Lofton/Peterson, Sanders, Hayden, Kelly, Chambers.

We have 5 draft picks plus Johnson should be back. Assuming we keep 4 draft picks on roster and have Johnson back, that leaves only 3 roster spots left. I expect Sanders, Hayden, and Mcclure to all be resigned cheap. Even if we cut Baker and/or Ovie, we are only going to be going for 1-2 free agents. If all that happens which is very possible, then we will need to draft/fa the following:

Starting RDE and LT

PR/KR/ST specialist

LB and OT Depth

TE and RB/FB

After we sign a few of our remaining guys, and leave money for the draft, we have little to use on FA unless we cut/trade Baker/Ovie/Turner. Lots of people here got their hopes up for something that had little chance of happening. If Wimbley gets cut from the Raiders, he will be cheaper than Mario, and someone who can replace Abe and not cost us losing in other areas as much. I think TD is avoiding Mario, and going for Wimbley or DE in the Draft.
