Falcons agree to terms with linebacker Philip Wheeler

Philip Wheeler and the Atlanta Falcons have agreed on a 1 year deal


Wheeler in limited games with the Falcons played both MLB and WLB. Many believe with more time Wheeler could push for the starting job at Weak Linebacker position, and relieve God awful Paul Worrilow (Who ranks 50th out of 57 ILBs) on passing downs.

Personally Mad Mike loves the signing and Falcons need depth and talent at the linebacker position. They currently have four linebackers on the roster, LaRoy Reynolds, Sean Weatherspoon Paul Worrilow, and Brooks Reed. Falcons are looking to bring in young talented guys through the draft. Guys such as Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland or Ohio State’s linebacker Darron Lee.
