Atlanta Falcons: A Position-by-Position Primer to Free Agency

The Atlanta Falcons not only have the sixth-overall selection in the forthcoming draft, but they will sit $16.6 million under the cap preceding free agency, according to my colleague Scott Carasik. After by far the worst season under the current regime, you can bet your bottom dollar general manger Thomas Dimitroff and owner Arthur Blank will have the Falcons active in free agency.

As presently constructed, Atlanta is a borderline playoff contender, but by jettisoning a few veterans it has a chance to create even more salary-cap relief—which could potentially drive the quality of acquisitions up a notch.

While most fans expect the gaping holes among the Falcons' roster to be filled through the draft, the free-agent market can be just as effective, if not more. The talent is plentiful, and the Falcons' resources are as well.

Let's take a look at the market as a whole and see which players would be an ideal fit.
