The Atlanta Falcons have filled a major need by agreeing to terms with pass-rusher Dante Fowler on a three-year, $48 million deal, a source told ESPN's Vaughn McClure on Wednesday.

Atlanta generated just 28 sacks last season. Fowler, who played for Falcons coach Dan Quinn while in college at Florida, brings quickness off the edge to pair with Grady Jarrett's push inside.

Fowler had 11.5 sacks with the Los Angeles Rams last season after 3½ turbulent years with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

They may have a good pass rush again with this move. Screw them.

Better that than relying on going into the season with a LB has never stayed healthy in the history of his football tenure and a UDFA that hasn't proven anything yet, right?
What does a DE have to do with our linebackers? Fowler is not a 4-3 linebacker.

I hope not, we don’t want him anywhere near Drew. He was the cause for the interception...

Better not see Ramczyk with his hands in his pockets again.
They even credit him for the illegal hit for getting the Rams to the SB without mentioning the fact that yet another flag should have been thrown but wasn't in the article.

One 10 sack season got him that overpaid?

by comparison, Cam got 3 years/52 and he’s not even close to being Cam lol

Atl is so desperate ???

A reminder that Fowler played behind Donald and Suh.
Next to Donald and Suh. They're a 4-3 defense. He's a DE in that case, not an OLB. He'll be playing opposite McKinley in ATL.

Former first-round pick Takk McKinley, who is recovering from shoulder surgery, might work off the other edge opposite Fowler. The Falcons also could target a defensive lineman high in the draft as well.
