Football Outsiders proclaim the Falcons most daring offseason move is to draft Matt Ryan's replacement at No. 4 overall.
For the Jaguars, the 17th opponent will most likely be the Atlanta Falcons, assuming what King is reporting is accurate — things could still be subject to change. This game will also likely be at home inside TIAA Bank Field for Jacksonville. Why the Falcons, though?
It’s free agency month for the Atlanta Falcons, a first chance for the new guys on the block to show us what their vision is for the team. General manager Terry Fontenot spent years helping the cap-strapped New Orleans Saints make deal after deal in free agency, which makes you wonder if he’ll take the same approach in Atlanta. While the team still is about $20 million over the cap, you should still expect the front office to get busy to help get this roster in competing shape sooner than later.
