The Atlanta Falcons return most of what was one of the most balanced, talented rosters in the NFL. The Falcons convinced tight end Tony Gonzalez to return for one more run at the Super Bowl, and they landed veteran workhorse back Steven Jackson to rejuvenate their power running game.
The Falcons wisely chose to shore up the cornerback position in the draft after losing Brent Grimes to the Miami Dolphins. Respective first- and second-round picks (and rookie camp teammates) Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford should be in the playing-time picture immediately.cheap Jerseys Wholesale,cheap nike nfl jerseys
However, after replacing one-man pass rush John Abraham with free agent Osi Umenyiora—unlikely to be a net positive anywhere outside the team balance sheet—the Falcons did little to bolster the front seven.
This is a team that fell just short of the Super Bowl and will be better this season due to Jackson alone. Still, the Falcons could have done more to get ahead of their NFC rivals.
