Why wasn't Ben ever a long term look at defensive tackle? He played pretty well there when given the chance and probably would have only helped given more time in the line-up. We'll miss u buddy! Another Falcon footballer who we only partially put in the best position to win smh. Guys like Garland deserve better from this franchise. Tired of seeing role players being underappreciated here.

There are a few G/C’s in this year’s draft.

Dalton Risner - can play LG/C/RG/RT

Elgton Jenkins - can play LG/C

Garrett Bradbury - can play LG/C

Erik McCoy - can play LG/C/RG

 

Versatility was the word Quinn used when he explained the resigning of Sambrailo. All four player’s fits that mold.

I believe Wes was also cross trained at G and C. If the goal is to bring in a new starter and make Wes a primary backup, Garlands old role is basically already filled.

Well, I'm glad the Falcons are not trying to go into 2019 with virtually the same cast of characters they had in 2018.  They were not even close in 2018.  No need to bring back everybody because you are scared to go get a replacement.  We need upgrades.  Give me a young guy that wants it vs a guy that is just looking to ride it out.  Not saying that is what Garland is doing.  There have been some guys that seem real content and their play has leveled off if not gotten worse.  Time for some "fresh blood" so to speak.

Garland was a great story and a very likeable guy. I am sure he will be missed in the locker-room.

On the field though, I think he can be replaced with someone who has a bit more upside.

I don't think he was under-appreciated at all while here. I think the organization was really thankful for his willingness to do whatever askes to help the team. 

I wish him nothing but the best, but understand not bringing him back.

Story guy loved for his story. Wasn’t very good, although PFF loves him. 

It’s easier to have good PFF numbers when your fresh and rested for the 10 or less snaps you take in a game as a backup rotational player.

using pff numbers for non starters is to me, not an accurate measuring stick.

Yup.  Great guy off the field.  On the field...JAG

He will always have that safety on Russ.  Great moment!
