2. Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons were in the running for Sweat in the regular season before Washington traded him to the Bears. Atlanta reportedly offered a second-round pick for the former first-round pick after initially offering a third-round pick with various conditions.

Therefore, if I’m the Falcons general manager Terry Fontenot, I might want to offer a Day 2 pick for Reddick as we try to get the Raheem Morris era started on the right foot. This season, Atlanta’s top sack leaders were Calais Campbell (6.5 sacks) and Bud Dupree (6.5 sacks).

Campbell and Dupree are set to become unrestricted free agents in March and might not return next season. If that’s the case, Reddick should be on the Falcons’ targets this offseason even though they have $29 million in cap space.

The Falcons are projected to have seven picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, including three picks on Day 2. Morris, who is a defensive-minded head coach, would love to add Reddick off the edge even though he’s 29 years old. However, it seems as if the veteran defensive lineman is in his prime and could be a difference-maker in the NFC South.
