Falcons Try to Sort Out Crowded Secondary
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) – The Atlanta Falcons have a wealth of talent in the secondary. Now, they’ve got to figure out how to make it all work together.
The team already had two high-priced cornerbacks, Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson, then went out and acquired another during the offseason. The Falcons landed four-time Pro Bowler Asante Samuel in a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Everyone is eager to see how it all shakes out. Just fine so far, insists Robinson, who says everyone is comfortable in their roles and eager to do what’s best for the team.
Robinson seems headed for the biggest change in the crowded alignment. When all three cornerbacks are on the field, as will frequently be the case, he’s the one who’ll probably be moving inside most of the time.
