The Falcons lost safety Keanu Neal for the season when he tore his Achilles during Sunday’s loss to the Colts and the team will look at outside options as they move forward without him.

Kemal Ishmael replaced Neal on Sunday and will be part of the plan to fill in for him in the future, but head coach Dan Quinn said replacing all they lost won’t be done with just one player. As a result, Quinn said the team will bring in free agents for workouts on Tuesday.

Quinn didn’t mention any potential acquisitions by name. Eric Berry, T.J. McDonald and George Iloka are some familiar names who haven’t signed with teams for the 2019 season.

The Falcons also had defensive tackle Grady Jarrett leave the game with a toe injury, but Quinn indicated that they expect him back this week.

"We feel really good about bringing Jordan back.  He knows the scheme, he did some great things for us last year, we are excited to have him back.  He fits what we are trying to do on defense and is a guy that is extremely physical at the point of attack."

Brace yourself...

It’s  do or die for DQ or he is gonna brace for impact from  the god father.

That sounds just like him.

They should bring in CBs to try out and move Kazee back to safety. You could put Rico more in the box as SS or even some nickel. I was never in favor of moving a guy out of a position where he lead the team in INTs. Kazee was a complete ball hawk back there. Besides, I think we're weaker at corner than safety even with Neal out.

What’s his deal? Why’s he available?

If you asking about Berry @athell answered it for you, but if you’re talking about McDonald than you have to look further into what the Dolphins are doing (tanking). It was said they rather save 5.1M than to pay him since they are playing for the future.
