Things are relatively quiet with the Falcons right now as scouts, coaches and other personnel staffers prepare for the scouting combine, which begins next Wednesday, and free agency, which starts at the end of the month.

As much anticipation as there is about who Atlanta will draft and sign, it’s equally as intriguing to see how new general manager Thomas Dimitroff and coach Mike Smith plan to rebuild this roster. Will it be a gradual changeover, with the replacement of 4 or 5 starters next season? Or will they purge a huge chunk of the roster that has had diminishing results over the past three seasons and truly build from the ground up?

With team owner Arthur Blank saying the Falcons should have at least $23 million to spend in free agency, the plan seemingly would be a semi-gutting of the roster — at the least. Full Story – Journal-Constitution
