Farewell to Roddy White, Free Agency, Marquand Manuel’s Comments, and Draft Prospects

It’s been over a month since we dropped an Atlanta Falcons related episode of Bird Brehs and naturally a lot has transpired.

AD, Rome, Trent, and guest co-host Justin (@JCity123 on Twitter) broke down all the happenings with the team and gave their predictions for the upcoming draft and remainder of free agency.

To start off, we discussed the release of Roddy White and Marquand Manuel’s interview question at the Combine to Ohio State DB Eli Apple. We also looked at the Falcons free agent signings thus far and how the salary breakdown affects team flexibility moving forward.

What will the Front 7 look like? We talked the possibility of the Falcons signing Rams free agents, James Laurinaitis and Chris Long.

To finish up we discuss some draft prospects, a few more free agents and the Falcons draft strategy. Will they go heavy defense? Trade down in the 1st round?

Thanks to Justin for hopping on the podcast with us and shoutout to the Dirty Bird Nation Facebook group, as well.
