Thomas Dimitroff finally answered questions on whether Sean Weatherspoon will be apart of the Falcons defense.
“Sean Weatherspoon is going to be an important part of building this defense and building this team,”
“He has that side of him and that leadership that we need across the board.”
“He’s a guy that’s really, really focused on his rehab,” Dimitroff added. “We need him back in this organization to help us go to another level. He’s starting to move around.”
With Dan Quinn returning to the 4-3 scheme. Sean Weatherspoon will likely be moving back to his weakside linebacker position. The 27 year old Weatherspoon has missed the last 3 seasons with lisfranc, knee and Achilles injuries of the past three years
Weatherspoon stats 210 tackles 7.0 sacks and 12 passes defensed from 2011-12.
