Falcons Land Freeney and His Spin Move 


By Dre McClendon

The Atlanta Falcons have landed a player to help with their ailing pass rush by signing former Cardinal defensive end Dwight Freeney to a one-year deal on Tuesday, August 2nd.  Freeney chose them over the Bengals.

Freeney’s career has expanded 14 seasons.  He has played for the Colts, Chargers, and Cardinals. Amassing 119.5 sacks along the way. His eight sacks alone last season with the Cardinals was only 11 behind the Falcons as a team (19). Even though the veteran is 36 and considered by most, long in the tooth. Bringing in Freeney will not only boost the Falcons pass rush, but can also serve as a veteran presence and mentor to star defensive end/outside linebacker, Vic Beasley.

While he may not be the dominant force he once was, this move is good for both Freeney and the Falcons.  This signing has already made Falcon fans plenty excited about the season and about Freeney’s devastating swim move and he will once again wreak havoc for the Falcons down in Atlanta.

  1. Love the signing! Nice veteran guy who is without a doubt one of the GREATEST pass rushers the NFL has ever seen, even at his age. A guy Vic Beasley can learn from and count on in pass situations.


  2. I don’t really like the signing…great blog but we stay signing folk past their prime…how about we try something new….
