Atlanta Falcons Veterans Who Have Been Put on Notice This Offseason
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

While many fans enjoy following the NFL offseason because of the hope and optimism that it often generates for the coming year, the free-agency period and the draft can be nerve-racking for veteran NFL players and their families.

Every rookie provides new competition for a roster spot, and many veteran players end up becoming expendable in favor of their younger colleagues or high-profile veteran free-agent acquisitions.

The Atlanta Falcons sent a few popular veteran players packing at the beginning of the offseason, but that doesn't mean that all of the younger veterans who are still on the roster are safe.

As we look ahead to Falcons' training camp, let's take a glance at which Atlanta Falcons players may be in danger of losing their job to an incoming free agent, rookie or veteran teammate.

The players on this list were selected based on an evaluation of the positions that the Falcons targeted in free agency and the draft, the players' ages and the future financial implications of the their contracts.

All stats are from ESPN.com, and all contract information is from Spotrac.com.
