I bought this dismal team last season and got really active with trades and FA's. We gave up some quality talent but I wanted a certain player to run our schemes so it was needed. It worked! We went from the cellar to Division champs and won our 1st rd playoff game.
Our draft was outstanding but it should have been. We had 3 - First Round picks and 4 - Second Rounders so we should have done well...I think we did.
The foundation is getting set for the long haul from this season's draft;
We picked up a FS, a pair of CB's, 2 O-Linemen, a WR who I think is a sleeper. Finally we got a really good QB well into the second round. I wasn't necessarily needing one but he was too good to pass up.
Anyway, the future looks bright in Atlanta as we will have 2 - 1sts, 2 - 2nds, and 2 - 3rds next season to further build upon. We will also free up 30 mil in dead cap from cleaning house.
Best of luck to all
