One of my favorite Falcons of all-time and one of the greatest free-agent additions in team history isn’t hanging up the cleats just yet:
Falcons C Alex Mack, who becomes a free agent March 17, is not considering retirement as of now. I've been told Mack, who's 35, has career options for 2021 but he hasn't decided yet on next step yet. @TheAthletic

Alex Mack has been one of the best players on the Falcons for a few seasons now, and before he finally does call it quits, I’d imagine he would want to play for a contender. Atlanta can certainly get back to the playoffs in 2021, but Mack reuniting with Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco seems like a likely scenario at this point. PFF projects Mack to receive a one year, $6 million deal in free agency. While that’s a pretty affordable price-tag for what Mack offers, there are a lot of cheaper and younger options on the market, along with Matt Hennessy who’s slated to take over.
I don’t really see a Mack reunion happening. It’s more likely, in my opinion, that the Falcons consider options like David Andrews, Austin Blythe, or Austin Reiter instead. Regardless, I’d love to have the big fella back.
