Falcons sign Tyeler Davison

I don’t see how he is better than the McClain signing last year. Another lazy signing to me. 

I’ll always give Quinn a chance though. Not that us fans have any say anyways. 

I’m confused how they’re anything similar? Davidson is a 3 year starter for the Saints and they had the #1 run defense in the NFL last year. Only 26 too.

Played 40% of the defensive snaps last year and for what it's worth they had the #1 run defense for a majority of the year and finished #2. He's not a flashy signing but could add the run stoppin

I will say that the FO has been busy as **** this year.

I think this is huge. Literally. More beef the better.  Can’t belive saints let him go. Or can’t bleieve we got em. 

They replaced him with Malcolm Brown, so that’s an upgrade. Davison is actually pretty good against the run. Don’t expect anything from him as a pass rusher at all. Overall I’d say he’s an average DT. I highly doubt he starts for you guys, but as far as depth goes, good signing. He will at least be in the d line rotation.

We sign this guy for run downs and draft Oliver to rotate and be a 3T on pass downs. I don’t know why people are freaking out and think we won’t draft Oliver if we can. The minute we play a big line with only Oliver and Jarrett, they will 1) Run it up the middle all day 2) Wear our light DLine out like the have been for ages. We need a true Nose to stop the bleeding. Oliver will replace Grady because we can’t afford him long term and he made it known he wants to out of Atlanta to test FA and get a big payday. This is the FO preparing for Grady to leave next year and shoring up the run D.

Probably assuming he's a 30 YO vet minimum signing coming off bad year.

All 3 would be wrong takes. Hence, his opinion is just name spewing reaction only b/c it ain't a big name. :tiphat:

1T is set for all I care. Let's go BPA Draft. :)

I hope the FO is not just making deals willy-nilly from a position of being job-scared.  Which we all know they probably are...job-scared, I mean.   

There's nothing worse than management decisions made simply because their jobs are on the line. 

Every contract so far has outs built in by design and relatively low caphits early or period; and where the hits could go higher we have players coming off the books.

Not a single signing has us strapped for the future.

If they were scared they'd panic overspend on a FA or just give Grady whatever and not negotiate.

The FO is showing patience and thoroughness before the draft.

How is there possibly a bad take from this signing? :huh:

It's very possible we try to move up for Oliver for reasons related to Grady's contract dynamic in play but the moves in FA before the draft are simply setting us up to do what we want.

Oliver would be closest thing to a fix for losing GJ next year; if he were just not agreeable at all. THAT is possible scenario...

Then, with Oliver at 3T next; year after playing all over the DL as a rookie...would allow us to draft EDGE next year to overturn the VB leaving scenario.

However, I doubt we trade up at all costs. Only if he falls enough in the Draft; hence the "DET and ATL swapping 1sts if player ATL wants is at 8" rumor etc...therefore the 'alternate' DT at 14 or trade down for CB approach.

I didn't say it was bad. 

Merely posited a general concern not necessarily related to it.

Indeed. For a team with supposedly little to no CAP wiggle room, Quinn and TD have been shucking and jiving big time. I think they've done an excellent job so far, but we'll know more as the weeks and months roll on.

Fair enough, but the only thing close to panic signings would be the OG moves to start FA. However, they still are early-out contracts.

I'm loving our setup to this draft. We can nail it how we want.

Julio will get done. My concern is GJ moving forward.

You can only control so much on draft day. Just get the BPA on our board where you need a starter/depth for 2019 or roster overturn/replacement of existing starter by 2020.

He's not a flashy signing but could add the run stopping element just the same as Danny Shelton. 

@g-dawg @GeorgiaBoyz and everyone else I argued with, I'm happy now. We got some run defense help (although I would like some more, Chase Winovich/Zach Allen if possible)

Let's trade up and go get Ed ******* Oliver.

 

Great, welcome aboard Yo!

You never want to dictate the top of the draft over a run stuffer - better to get a role player for that task.

Trade up for Oliver or Sweat, whoever falls to #8.
