The Atlanta Falcons haven't made any big moves during free agency and made a couple of minor ones Wednesday with the re-signing of defensive end Kroy Biermann and the addition of offensive lineman Jared Smith. Former Denver Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme could soon join the list after apparently agreeing to a contract.

Though the contract details for Biermann and Smith are not known as this time, running back Antone Smith's one-year deal was made official this week. He'll have a base salary of $1.2 million with a signing bonus of $200,000 for a 2015 cap figure of $1.4 million.

As of today, NFLPA records have the Falcons with $20,147,700 in cap space. Here is a look at the cap numbers for the players either signed or re-signed this offseason (new Falcons in bold):

1. Justin Durant, $3,666,666

i hope Kroy is closer to the vet minimum with a ton of incentives.

I don't think it will be extremely incentive-laden because if I was a betting man, I think he takes more of a rotational role and plays way more special teams now that we have Schofield and Clayborn and probably a draft pick playing DE.
