Falcons Right Tackle Ryan Schraeder signed an extension deal in 2016 that had him making 6M roster bonus. Instead that 6M has been converted into a signing bonus.
The move leaves The team with 4.8M in future cap space. Falcons are allegedly interested in defensive tackle Dontari Poe, but Poe made a trip to meet the Colts. However, Poe asking price maybe a little more than what Falcons are willing to pay.
Source: #Falcons like Dontari Poe a lot, but chances of actually getting a deal done w/him are slim as of right now.

Dan Quinn has a great track record developing young defensive linemen. Adrian Clayborn, Courtney Upshaw, Brooks Reed is playing much better. Rashede Hageman is showing was he’s capable of doing.
In my opinion there’s no reason to give Dontari Poe 40 million plus, unless you feel he can make your defense ELITE.
Besides there are good DTs still available.
Most surprising aspect of free agency so far is probably the good DTs that are still available like Dontari Poe, Bennie Logan, Hankins, etc.
