g-dawg Posted March 28, 2013 Share Posted March 28, 2013 After cutting Abraham, D-Rob and likely letting Grimes walk, Falcons needed 2 starting D-Ends and 2 starting CBs (as I consider 3 CBs as starters).Kroy Bierrman is a valuable player but he is a rotational guy that can play nickel OLB and is just a guy that should come in to spell starting D-Ends.Massoquoi and Matthews are just back-ups. Maybe one of these guys will develop but for a team with Superbowl aspirations, it is unwise to count on either of these guys.My thought was Falcons would want to add 1 veteran DE and 1 veteran CB before turning to the draft. We have added Osi Umenyiora at DE so now I believe we should look to the draft for hopefully another guy that could start (however we could still grab Abe much later in the spring if his price continues to drop).Even if Falcons add a cornerback in the draft - and they should - they still need a wily vet to pair with Samuel and McClain. Here are the suspects:Brent Grimes (30 - best option, even w/ injury)Chris Gamble (said he retired but could come back for contender)Mike Jenkins (28)Antoine Winfield (old at 36)Nmandi Asomugha (32, still living off his name and will get too much $$$)Tracy Porter (27)Marcus Trufant (32) - sign him then draft his brother.
