Falcons are the “frontrunner” for Redskins LB Brian Orakpo

orakpoAccording to NBC’s Dianna Marie Russini, the Atlanta Falcons are the front runners to land Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo.  The Falcons have been trying to fix their front seven for a while, and continue to struggle at making ends meet.  Over the past several years the team has signed numerous players on the defensive side of the ball and they just have not produced.

I’m hearing that Atlanta is the front runner for signing Brian Orakpo. #Falcons

Hopefully with Orakpo that bad luck will change.  There are rumors that the Falcons are also trying to sign Brooks Reed, which would mean a new look and a nasty pass rushing defense.
