Maybe so, but White’s still the go-to guy, at least in my eyes. That’s because White can be counted on in the clutch, at least from a media point of view.
It’s a slow news day because most of the NFL world is in transit to the scouting combine. But White stepped up to fill the void.
If coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff aren’t already considering Freeney, maybe they should listen to White.
Freeney is 33, so he’s not a long-term solution. But the Falcons are in a position where they don’t have to always think about the long term. They’re a team that seems on the cusp of something really great, and adding Freeney for a season or two might get them to where they want to go.
