Do the Falcons have any free agent options if they can’t re-sign Austin Hooper?

I don’t even want to put this out into the universe, frankly, but there is a chance the Falcons might lose Austin Hooper this offseason. I expect they will truly make him the offseason’s biggest priority, and Thomas Dimitroff hasn’t lost many in-house free agents he has prized over the years, but the possibility at least exists.

In light of that, it’s worth looking at free agents available at tight end, should the Falcons need a stopgap option while a rookie (or maybe Jaeden Graham) gets up to speed. As it turns out, this class does have a handful of veteran, unrestricted free agents who could be solid one-year options, and a couple who might be worth multi-year accords.
