Falcons Not Bringing Back Ben Garland

Garland played in 14 games last season for Atlanta last season, including 4 starts.
The Falcons are looking to remake their offensive line this offseason.
Falcons, Ty Sambrailo Agree to Contract Extension
The Atlanta Falcons and offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension, according to an official team announcement.
“We are excited to bring Ty back as a part of our brotherhood,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said, via an official team statement.
“His versatility has proven to be one of his many strengths. We look forward to him being a valuable piece of the offensive line.”
Falcons Not Tending Brian Poole
Poole has played as the primary nickel back for the past three seasons in Atlanta and is coming off a career year in 2018 in which he set a number of career highs in tackles, sacks, and interceptions.
According to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, the door is still open for Poole to return to the Falcons but he would have to agree to a lesser deal than the RFA tender.
