Falcons: With Barkevious Mingo’s future in doubt, adding another pass rusher becomes even more important

The Falcons could have already used some extra help with their pass rush, but today, the level of desperation has increased in an instant.

The Falcons have released a statement saying that they are taking these allegations “very seriously”, and I personally doubt that Mingo is ever going to suit up for Atlanta. My co-host of Talkin’ Birdy Matt Karoly talked about the logistics of Mingo’s deal, and what will happen if the Falcons decide to move on:

Of course, the market for pass rushers isn’t as flush as it was a few months ago. Regardless, the Falcons still have about $8.6 million in cap space. Perhaps a guy like Justin Houston, Melvin Ingram, or Olivier Vernon would be enticed by the idea of working with Dean Pees and a still solid Falcons roster. I would have liked to have signed one of these guys even before Mingo’s legal issues, but now, it’s seeming like more of a need than a want.
