That gave him a tackling efficiency rate of 100 percent, which is as good as it gets: Perhaps if Trufant had played the entire season that might have changed, but it’s an undeniably impressive feat. Despite his recent surgery, the Falcons gave Trufant a five-year extension that made him one of the top-five paid cornerbacks in the game. That money is clearly going to be
