Kaptain Krazy Posted January 20 Share Posted January 20 From Michael Rothstein, espn, this morning https://www.espn.com/blog/atlanta-falcons/post/_/id/37424/why-2022-offered-optimism-for-the-future-of-the-atlanta-falcons After two seasons of roster overhauling and eliminating issues with the salary cap, they could spend the next couple of months figuring out what they need and what they want to add without worrying as much about how to pay for it. “We had a plan from the very beginning, and now we’re in the next phase of that,” Fontenot said. “This is going to be a different offseason than we’ve had in the previous years. Yet, we’re still going to be smart, we’re still going to handle things the right way, we’re still going to set parameters and have discipline with everything that we do.” --- They revealed their mindset when they took a receiver with their top-10 pick the last two seasons, and an athletic but very unexperienced LB from a small school with their 3rd pick last draft: Fontenot and Smith don't feel pressure to win immediately at all costs, but instead believe they have time to build slowly. Extending Terrell, Lindstrom, and keeping McGary would fit in that approach. Will be interesting to see what Fontenot's $ ceiling is for FA signings.
