So far, it’s been a busy offseason for the Atlanta Falcons.
After going into the 2018 season on a short list of teams favored to win the Super Bowl, a number of injuries to starting players threw a monkey wrench into their eventual 7-9 campaign.
This time around, the Falcons have been proactive in making sure that doesn’t happen again.
Already, a number of high profile players have been given their walking papers and the team has brought in a few notable names to help repair the holes left by those players.
The team has made a number of acquisitions particularly on offense, signing a pair of guards to revive their interior pass protection, and announced one major signing on defense.
Most importantly, the team is trying to make some needed improvements on both sides of the ball in the trenches, both keeping their own quarterback upright and getting to the other one.
That they believe they did when they drafted guard Chris Lindstrom and tackle Kaleb McGary with their first two selections this year, both regarded among the best at their positions.
Here is a rundown of the Falcons’ biggest gains and losses so far.
