Lofa Tatupu To Sign With Falcons


Recommended Posts

Good sign by the Falcons. If he is healthy, he will be a great playmaker.


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Falcons have reached a contract agreement with free agent linebacker Lofa Tatupu.

Tatupu sat out all of last season while recovering from double knee surgeries. Atlanta worked him out Friday morning and struck the deal Saturday afternoon.

YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS! THEY'RE LETTING LOFTON WALK! Wow, that's a shocker, Lofton knows that team very well and is still very young, younger than Tatupu. Not a good move by the Falcons.

Tatupu is probably still there to provide depth and knowledge.

With a team he has no idea about...It's going to be hard to afford Tatupu and Lofton on the same roster plus you have to sign Ryan soon along with a number of players. It's a terrible signing if they keep Lofton.

I think it is a good signing. Everyone just wants to chastise any aging vet assuming they have no value and gas left in the tank. The Pats made it work with so many vets for the longest time, yep they only won 3 SBs with them. Pass coverage is probably the reason Tatupu is out there. I am just glad the Saints did not get him.

    • I agree. Passsing on Bowers is wild. But he went to the Bengals which tells me DJ forced a pick. Sometimes with mock drafts, people love a player and team fit so much that they have players slip way past what is feasible. People have been clamoring for the Bengals to draft a TE for years so Bowers would be a dream scenario for that crowd that thinks that.
    • The only thing that it changed was that Kelce got more looks and went from 1 catch for 1 yard before the half to 9 catches for 92 yards the rest of the way.     Forgotten is their LB play. Their LBs Nick Bolton and Willie Gay are good blitzers and stay with boot legs and rollouts well enough that Purdy with pressure in his face can barely get 5 yards off his throw after the pass catcher gets tackled. When 1-on-1 Purdy once outran Nick Bolton for a horse collar penalty, so Spags changed it to a safety Reid instead of putting an LB on Purdy realizing Purdy has got some wheels. You couldn't help but notice the quick adjustment. Plus, the angles an OLB takes also matter. Sam Hubbard of the Bengals on the surface may not be fast in a straight line but he takes very good angles and hence Lou Anurumo used that DE/OLB as a Mahomes spy and played contain in that 2021 AFCCG where the Bengals beat the Chiefs.   The biggest difference now is that Mahomes and The Chiefs are dinking and dunking like Brady and The Patriots and it is not a deep to shallow level passing game like before, more shallow to deep levels that gives DCs fits because Mahomes' decision making, since he was forced to grow after Tyreek Hill left, has improved. It doesn't help he has a D like the Patriots in those early SB years either. 
    • “If Ballard doesn’t add talent…”   When has that ever happened?   Some years are better than others, but the man adds talent.    “And if the coaching change doesn’t help…”.     After a great first year, why should you be at all concerned that Steichen’s influence won’t help?       I don’t know why you’re shoveling all this worry and negative viewpoints?   
    • Yeah, I agree with this. I also believe that Kelce getting aggressive with Andy Reid may have sparked the Chiefs as they were getting shut out at that point and Reid made some adjustments. I've never seen KC have this good of a defense though. Spags did an amazing job with them, and the adjustments were as good as Belichick made (since you mentioned the Pats). Mahomes didn't have an amazing year on offense in all honestly. The defense kept him in games. I saw a stat earlier in the year where they were either undefeated or only lost one game when allowing less than 24 points (I think they allowed 27 once). Mahomes is a great QB, but he didn't have to be this year. The defense stifled all the top offenses in the NFL.    McDuffie and Sneed are two shutdown corners. WRs had a lot of trouble Vs them. Solid pressure on the front 7 as well. It's amazing when you consider how late they draft every year. I wish Ballard would consider adding a secondary scout from KC that was responsible for adding Sneed and McDuffie.
