During the last 10 years, the Atlanta Falcons went from the laughingstock of the league to an Super Bowl contender, to a broken franchise following the Michael Vick fiasco, back to a Super Bowl contender and looking like they should stick around for many years to come.
During this time they have made several big splashes in free agency that most people may have forgotten about, or will remember once it is brought up. These players helped turn this franchise around and some are continuing to do so.
So without further ado, we start the list.
Writer's Note: There is a chance that I have missed a player or two. I went through the transactions over the last ten years on ESPN, and there were a lot of players. So, if I missed one let me know in the comments and I'll do what I can.
