Highlighted by the latest addition of defensive tackle Dontari Poe, the Falcons also reached agreements with newcomers Andre Roberts and Jack Crawford. Roberts, a wide receiver and kick returner, last played with the Detroit Lions while linebacker Crawford was with the Dallas Cowboys. Atlanta also resigned six players through the first week of free agency, keeping the “brotherhood” intact for the most part momentarily.Roberts is a huge addition as longtime Falcons return man Eric Weems was signed by the Tennesse Titans in the opening days of free agency. Crawford meanwhile brings versatility – a focus within the Falcons scheme on defense – as he’ll be able to line up with the d-line and play his position. Atlanta so far has retained backup quarterback Matt Schaub, defensive tackle Courtney Upshaw, tight end Levine Toilolo, LaRoy Reynolds, and defensive backs Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Kemal Ishmael.
