Raheem Morris doesn’t hold back when talking about Dante Fowler’s lack of production

We’ve barely talked about Dante Fowler Jr. this season, and that’s typically not a good thing when you’re talking about the one ‘star’ free-agent the Falcons went out and bought last offseason. He has become the latest busted pass-rushing signing of the Thomas Dimitroff era, and he might be the worst one yet.

For the season, Fowler has only managed 21 combined tackles, three of which went for a loss, two sacks, and seven quarterback hits. That’s abysmal production for someone who the Falcons owe nearly $40 million to over the next two years — so bad, that even his own coach didn’t hold back when talking about Fowler’s underwhelming 2020 campaign.

Dante Fowler seemed to have another explanation for why he hasn’t lived up to his contract thus far, tweeting out a tweet that was later deleted, stating that he has been playing through an injury the entire season, yet it hasn’t stopped him from putting his body on the line each week.

Regardless, 2020 has been a massive disappointment for the Falcons and Fowler. Jake talked earlier this week how the new regime could approach his situation this offseason. The Falcons would have to eat a lot of dead money, but by designating him a Post-June 1st cut, they could save around $8 million in 2021. At this point, that seems like the most reasonable course of action.
