Recapping Falcons free agency through the initial spending frenzy

The Atlanta Falcons were expected to spend this March, and they have. The team entered free agency with about $63 million in cap space and are sitting here a week-and-a-half later with just over $20 million in remaining space and have signed or re-signed 15 players since shortly before free agency opened. It’s a better football team on paper than it was at the end of last year, as low of a bar as that is, and the team is likely to sign a handful of players before they hit the 2023 NFL Draft.

Given that the team appears to be taking a breather to let the market settle rather than wrapping up—they really need to add depth, perhaps a left guard, and definitely another edge rusher—it’s a fine time to stop and take stock of what they’ve done thus far.
