Does everyone forget how angry they were with Poole after the Super Bowl?

Poole was a great bargain as an UDFA, and played far beyond his measurables. However, as you pointed out, he wasn't All World and with Kazee probably taking his place we can look later in the draft or in the UDFA pool to replace him as the #4 CB. 

I'm curious what we will do with Wreh-Wilson now.

Wreh-Wilson is pretty good, but is he cheap? 

Poole was making 630,000 last year. The lowest they could tender him at is $1.9 million. He can make more than that on the open market as a starter somewhere. The Falcons can add two guys for that much. Can't sign 'em all. Kazee is a keeper. 

If this staff can find a Kazee in the late rounds and a Poole in UDFA, who says they can't do that again?

Poole had some high lites with this hits on wilson and rodgers. I last image of him is missing brees on that tackle with alford. F...k it. Im glad him and alford are out of here.

Because of a missed tackle.

Troy Polamalu would have been cut every week if the fans had a say.

So if Kazee is our main NB .. We can't pay 3.1 mil for our 4th CB .... 

 

Some will say give him the lower tender at 2 mil ... We sign Poole for 2 mil.. Some team come in and offer him a bigger contract ... Now we don't even get a comp pick for him being signed.

 

It sucks because I like Poole.. He is a solid *** player but I understand... Kazee stepping in as the NB plus we need every extra dime of our cap to improve the team

Well I'm not shocked. I heard Poole in a radio interview a couple weeks ago and it sounded like he might have already known this. I will miss him. He was a play maker. Solid in run support and incredible with his corner blitz timing. With that said, he was turrible in coverage. Well as of today the corners on the roster are:

  • Desmond Trufant
  • Isaiah Oliver
  • Taveze Calhoun

Scary. I'm not going to count Rico or Kazee because they are your starting and back up free safeties. If you move one of them to corner you need a FS. So it looks like Dimi will have to add 2-3 corners via free agency and/or the draft. I hope yall boys don't lose it if we go with Byron Murphy or DeAndre Baker with our first round pick.
