    Green doesn't sound to bad from what I just read but I think I still lean toward charles, he just has star potential all over him.

    Falcons T/G Sam Baker is set to count $3.7 million against the 2012 salary cap.

    The 21st overall pick in the 2008 draft, Baker's base salary in the final year of his rookie deal is $2,576,250. Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Jeff Schultz suggests that the Falcons should cut Baker, which would create room under the cap. A bust as a former first-round selection, Baker has chronic back problems and lost his job in 2011 to Will Svitek.
    Of Falcons RCB Dunta Robinson's $6 million base salary, $5 million is guaranteed for the 2012 season.

    Robinson has fallen well short of expectations since Atlanta made him one of the NFL's highest paid cornerbacks in 2012, but they're going to have to suck it up for one more year. Robinson has just three interceptions in 31 games as a Falcon, and Pro Football Focus graded him 101st of 109 qualifying cornerbacks in 2011. Robinson ranked an even worse 105th in pass coverage.

    I actually believe Dunta will be a lot better this coming season because of the aggressive style Nolan will allow.

    Yeah I hoping he will be too. Nolans style seems to suit Robinsons style more.

    Yea Dunta is used to bumping the WR putting his hands down on his opposition and just slow down the receiver at the line of scrimage. Playing alot more press coverage will help out Robinson and also Franks who is a good press corner as well. It will also help the Safeties and give them more time to get in place. I see Dunta getting a Carlos Rodgers like come back.

    Heard a few interviews from TD. Feels like we're going to see more big moves in the coming months.

    Yeah, this is a playoff team in three of the last four seasons. While we want changes too many may hurt us and be unnecessary.

    John Abraham, DE: After an early-season groin injury, the Falcons placed Abraham on a play-count for most of the season. They increased his number of plays late in the season and for the playoffs.

    He had a base salary of $8 million and led the team with 9.5 sacks. He essentially was the teamís pass rush. If he returns, it likely will be at a reduced salary and as a designated pass-rush specialist.

    Kroy Biermann, DE: He has been solid while playing in the rotation at defensive end. The Falcons will want to pay him as a rotational player. If he gets to the open market, some 3-4 teams may covet him as a stand-up linebacker because of his athleticism.

    Kirk Chambers, OT: He likely will not be re-signed.

    Thomas DeCoud, FS: Heís a strong candidate for an extension and may not hit the open market. The Falcons would like for him to take charge of the defense so that strong safety William Moore can be free to attack the ball and become a menacing force.

    Harry Douglas, WR: This one could get tricky because some teams may view Douglas as a No. 2 receiver. With the Falcons, heís the No. 3 and will remain that as long as Roddy White can keep rolling along and Julio Jones keeps developing.

    If he gets a lucrative offer, Douglas could leave for another team. Eric Weems would then be elevated to the No. 3 position. A wide receiver-starved team such as Cleveland or Jacksonville could swoop in and sign Douglas.

    Brent Grimes, CB: Grimes arguably has been the teamís best corner over the past two seasons.

    Heíll point to the six-year, $57 million contract that the Falcons gave Dunta Robinson in March 2010. Robinson was 27 at the time. Grimes is set to turn 29 in July, so the team likely would want to do a four-year deal.

    They could keep Grimes from the open market by using the franchise tag, which would guarantee him about $10.2 million for one season.

    Kelvin Hayden, CB: A serious turf-toe injury ended his season. He could be brought back at a reasonable price if healthy.

    Reggie Kelly, TE: He likely wonít be re-signed. The Falcons like their young tight ends Michael Palmer and Ryan Winterswyk and probably will draft a tight end.

    Curtis Lofton, MLB: Loftonís camp probably will point to the four-year, $36-million deal that inside linebacker David Harris signed with the New York Jets in August.

    While Lofton has played on third downs, the Falcons may consider him a first- and second-down linebacker. The Falcons were tied for 29th in the NFL on third-down conversions (93-of-211) last season.

    Since being selected in the second round of the 2008 draft, Lofton has made more than 100 tackles in each of his four seasons.

    Todd McClure, C: The veteran wants to return for at least two more seasons. Heíll have to compete to retain his starting spot, and the Falcons will have to consider how he would handle a reserve role if he gets beat out. McClure has been a mainstay on the line since making the team as a seventh-round draft pick in 1999.

    Mike Peterson, LB: He ended the season on injured reserve. Before that he provided some quality depth and could return.

    Chris Redman, QB: He wants to return, and the team likely will work out a reasonable deal.

    Brett Romberg, C/G: He likely will not be re-signed.

    James Sanders, S: He was a solid backup and likely will return with a reasonable deal.

    Jason Snelling, RB: He will look for a deal elsewhere as his opportunities were reduced last season, and the team wants to get Jacquizz Rodgers more involved in the offense.

    Eric Weems, WR: Heís a valuable special-teams player who could step up as the third receiver.

    Joe Zelenka, LS: He likely will be re-signed.

    Idk if i like the idea of Weems at 3. Guess i was never that big of a fan. I dont want the falcons to overpay for douglas though. He dropped a good amount of passes. But what WR didnt last year right? But still hes not worth big money.

    It would make any sense to re-sign DeCoud. Not only did he get benched, but committing to him means you won't have an experienced vet on the back end to guide Moore, nor a true ballhawk (which is what this defense sorely needs).

    Yeah I'm not for resigning DeCoud but I don't want to see us down grade either so if we get someone not as established as he then I wanna see us get someone young with potential.

    Lofton is my number one concern. Him and Spoon together remind me of Briggs and Urlacher. Within the right system both can excell even more. I trully believe the sky is the limit for these two guys. Its just whos behind them thats getting us killed.

    Im trully disappointed in Grimes not playing against the giants even though I trully believe that wouldn't of made that great a difference. This team has key young pieces obviously and we need to get them winning playoff games before its too late.

    Its just that I dont know if we have enough around them to get it done. If your weak at just one position, you're going to get torched on it and thats whats happened these past couple years.

    Actually, Decoud re-signing would only makes sense if he is coming back for dirt cheap so they can make 1-2 other big moves. I believe Lofton or Grimes will be franchised, but they won't allow both to walk. Can't do that to your defense with four games against Brees and Newton, and next year's schedule featuring Romo, Eli, Stafford, Vick, etc.

    TD seems focused on being more physical up front on both sides (smart), so I'm interested to see what happens with Abe. And before anyone mentions it, it looks like Mathis and Freeney are on their way out in Indy since the Colts are moving to the 3-4. Dwight's cap number is something like 14M though and he is 31 if I'm not mistaken.
