    Grady Jackson: Large defensive player was cut by Falcons.

    Too lazy to give the link.

    He's 678 lbs., which would beef up a light dline we currently have.

    13 tackles for loss last season. Considered to be a massive run stopper.

    Yeah he's coming down. That was before breakfast this morning though so take it with the proverbial grain of salt. He might be back over 700lbs if he went with the Big Country Breakfast.

    I've got an extra 10 bucks around here. I'll kick that in towards a signing bonus.

    He would look great in Battle Red, Deep Steel Blue, and Liberty White.

    Leon can't feed the family on that 1st round rookie contract. Leon has to get paid. Leon can't get paid if one of those other guys don't jump on the ball.

    He's a run stuffer at 350 lb . TJ and Okoye are the same player , we need some beef .

    How old is Zgonina? He's a 14 year veteran and Grady Jackson is an 11 year veteran. Grady Jackson is bigger than Zgonina and also led the league in Tackles for losses last year with 13. He currently has 5.5 and was on pace for 12.5 this year before being cut.

    No way. He is easily the most overrated player in football. In his career, he has shut down exactly one big time receiver (TO), but that same receiver owned him the next time they played.

    He promotes himself as great, when the truth is he's mediocre.

    Very true. I keep wondering why people consider Johnson a real nose tackle when talking about our future.

    I can't stand Hall but after reading that whole article I can see where players would be concerned. I'm not sure if Petrino was the man for that job. some guys are better with college kids.

    Exactly.

    He has blazing speed which allows him to make up for his mistakes, but anyone who says he is a shutdown corner, isnt watching.

    I do not think anyone is saying sign him to a multi-year deal but what would the rest of the season matter. Besides he would be cheap.

    Sounds like the Falcon players are confused/upset by this move.

    Think Petrino is playing this season with Brohm in mind? Nah.

    Actually, I think he'll be a bit on the expensive side for us. There's no reason to suspect that he'll be cheap. The guy led the league in tackles for a loss and was on his way to leading the league once again this season. He was doing his job and then he was pushed out of Atlanta.

    I want Grady. Bad. I don't think he's coming. Do we have the cap room? I really don't think so. I really think that Grady is just what we need alongside Mario.
