All is quiet on the free agency front.
Over the first weekend, the Falcons lost three starters – Keith Brooking to Dallas, Michael Boley to New York Giants and Domonique Foxworth to Baltimore.
Safety Lawyer Milloy and defensive end Chauncey Davis are still out there.
The Falcons are clearly taking a low-key approach to free agency.
GM Thomas Dimitroff told us at the combine that the Falcons would not be major players in free agency. They are clearly not going after any top of the line free agents.
We’ll just keep working the phones and see what’s shaking this week.
Eagles’ tight end L.J. Smith’s name keeps coming up, but his agent Brian Mackler hasn’t confirmed anything on him. Mackler was busy getting Foxworth’s deal done. He also has former UGA and Cleveland Browns safety Sean Jones, who had a quiet weekend in the free agency game.
A couple of other names to keep an eye on are Colts linebacker Freddy Keiaho and Buffalo linebacker Angelo Crowell.
It’s been all quiet on the Derrick Brooks’ front, too.
Agent Drew Rosehaus in Miami has Jacksonville defensive end Paul Spicer, who has connections to the staff.
Are you a little disappointed that the Falcons have not make any moves in free agency?
