FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Free-agent outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield, who brought intensity to the Atlanta Falcons' defense and locker room last season, could find himself back on the team's roster before the regular season begins.
Schofield, who was offered a contract early in the free-agency process but never agreed to terms, has been in constant contact with Falcons coach Dan Quinn while awaiting the best opportunity. Schofield said he has options but is looking for the ideal fit at the right price. He made $1.7 million on a one-year contract last season.
"If the opportunity presents itself, I'll definitely return," Schofield said Tuesday from Hawaii.
