Scott Fujita, Scott Shanle,

solid veterans that were hungry and wanted to start. hate them or not they were just what this club needed.

that is why i look at platers like Mark Barron and Tahir Whitehead to man the WLB position

a repeat in the draft would be good too.

Now for the right price THAT would be a signing I could get on board with!

Wiliams was bad in Ryans 3-4 defense. (entire defense was bad) Before that he was great. If we don't swich to 3-4 defense then this is solid signing.

Yes sir . I remember towards the latter part of the 2015 season Mario complained about being dropped in coverage & doing things he wasn't use to. I think scheme had a lot to do with his play last year.

Definitely worth a look.

Hagan...we've got linebackers...good ones, and they're gonna be great...

Ellerbe's injury required patience; hip injury are more serious than all parties wanted to realize...

However, We DO need to draft another linebacker in the 2016 selection slate...

In fact, we should be drafting at least one linebacker or defensive end every year...

In free agency, I really wanted us to go after Trevathan...

After looking at the market initially and what it'll take to get a match to Cam Jordan (i.e. Malick Jackson) on the other side; there's no way we could afford Trevathan and it was best to lock down Ellerbe and back him up with a draft selection...

ILB Danny Trevathan

Current Falcons defensive coordinator Richard Smith is Trevathan's old position coach in Denver. Per McClure, "word is" the Falcons are willing to pay $5 million to $6 million per year to upgrade their linebacker corps. Atlanta is expected to face competition from the Bears for Trevathan's services.
