Falcons start the rebuilding process with early free-agent moves

More NFL offseason: Mock Drafts | Prospect Rankings | Pro Days | Top free agents

Atlanta is one of the teams that has a lot of work to do this offseason if they want to improve. In the first day of free agency, they made several important steps toward that goal. The team's biggest need, of course: Better protection for QB Matt Ryan.

In the video above, I share some of my thoughts on where the Falcons are headed.

Pat Kirwan has been around the league since 1972, serving in a variety of roles. He was a scout for the Cardinals and Buccaneers, a coach for the Jets as well as the team's Director of Player Administration where he negotiated contracts and managed the team's salary cap. He is the author of Take Your Eye Off the Ball: How to Watch Football by Knowing Where to Look, and the host of Sirius NFL Radio's Moving the Chains.
