I’m not buying it.
Sure, Revis would be a nice upgrade for any secondary. But I don’t think he’s in Atlanta’s plans.
General manager Thomas Dimitroff has made it pretty clear he wants to take care of his own guys first. That means cornerback Brent Grimes, safety William Moore and left tackle Sam Baker are tops on the list. Oh, and the Falcons also want to sign quarterback Matt Ryan to a long-term extension sometime this offseason. And tight end Tony Gonzalez might decide to return for one more season.
It was done to clear the way to keep Moore, Grimes and Baker.
Think back to last year when fans were calling for the Falcons to go out and sign Mario Williams. They Falcons didn’t do that. Instead, they re-signed their own free agents.
I’m expecting more of the same. Could Dimitroff make a significant move somewhere along the way? Yeah, he generally is good for one or two big moves a year. But I’m not getting any indication right now that the Falcons are attempting to make a play for Revis.
