The Falcons, even after a ho hum free agency that saw them balance out an underwhelming defense still need to add pieces for new HC Dan Quinn’s defense to work. Namely, the front seven has severe holes despite additions of LB Justin Durant and LB Brooks Reed. They have been searching for an impact pass rusher since the long gone days of John Abraham. Gregory fits that mold. He had a positive showing at the Combine, which was all the more impressive given that he was battling illness. Yes there are injury and size concerns but Gregory is the best remaining pass rusher left on the board and the team needs one badly.
The New York Giants and tonfaman23 are now on the clock.
