I can hear @Knight of God popping the champagne from hundreds of miles away.

Dear Ricardo Allen: you were one of the greatest 5th round picks in Falcons history. And you always made me proud as a fan with your tireless work ethic and dedication to improvement. Thank you f

I’ve told the story a bunch of times, but I went to Purdue with Rico and his wife (she was a graduate assistant at the time). Salts of the earth people and wish him and his family the ABSOLUTE best in

It’s been time to improve at FS for a good while now, but Rico was a good guy and an okay player for a good portion of his career here. At the very least he’ll be missed in the locker room. Hopefully we can get a difference maker at that position this offseason. 

Another case of a GM holding on to a diamond in the rough he found for way too long.  Did Rico out perform where he was drafted?  Yes.  But that doesn’t make him a quality starter.

Rico was a good guy and I say this respectfully, but I'm not sure he had the type of impact in the locker room you think. All types of riff raff was going on in there and it translated to the field with losses.

We need REAL leaders in that locker room.

I agree, but I would add that it isn't like his locker room presence translated to anything.  If you're 4-12, the locker room isn't listening anyway.
