Falcons Could Turn to Vets Law or McAllister at Corner?

Today’s AJC points out that the Falcons could turn to some help at corner as the team struggled vs the Chargers in that area:

Falcons coach Mike Smith was clearly displeased with the defense’s play against San Diego. The target of much of his displeasure was cornerbacks Chris Houston and Brent Grimes, who have been running with the first team defense, for their lack of physical play in man-to-man situations. It’s unlikely that Smith would toss either of the two rookies, Christopher Owens or William Middleton, out on the field before they are ready to play. But Owens’ performance plan may have to be accelerated.

There are a lot of veteran free agent cornerbacks available, including Mike McKenzie, Chris McAlister and Ty Law. Other veteran free agents include Ricky Manning, Sam Madison and Aaron Glenn. “I know we are very disappointed with our third down efficiency, but again that was a very good offense,” Smith said. “It’s something that we have to address, and we’ll address it as a coaching staff and a defensive unit.”
