The Atlanta Falcons did not wait long to take the chance to improve the organization. The Falcons reached deals with three players since the free agency period began at 4:00 PM ET. Guard Jon Asamoah, defensive end Tyson Jackson and defensive tackle Paul Soliai will all be wearing red and black in 2014. The Falcons are clearly taking the chance to add some veteranship to the defense, along with a guy who can help protect Matt Ryan.
Both Asanoah and Hackson played for the Chiefs, while Soliai is coming over from the Dolphins. Expect heavy packages of the 3-4 defense by the Falcons in 2014, the team already re-signed defensive lineman Corey Peters last week.
We will continue to monitor all of the things the Falcons do during free agency so make sure to spread the word!
