NFL Free Agency: Falcons 'Figure' To Replace Harvey Dahl, Tyson Clabo, According To Report

The Atlanta Falcons aren't likely to be able to re-sign all three of their starting free agent offensive linemen. Some have wondered how the team could've gotten itself into this mess, but the team has been stockpiling OL draft picks for years now for a reason.

According to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, the team is prepared to lose Harvey Dahl and Tyson Clabo in free agency, perhaps re-signing only Justin Blalock. Dahl and Clabo are sure to command big deals no matter with whom they sign, considering Clabo is coming off a Pro Bowl year, Dahl might be one of the league's most-underrated players and each has started for at least three years in a row. 

I'd have to think Dahl especially would be more valuable to the Falcons than he would for most other teams, and wouldn't be surprised to see him stick around. If not, expect Mike Johnson to be first in line to take his place. Clabo should be slightly more of a plug-and-play commodity, leaving Garrett Reynolds, Will Svitek and Jose Valdez to battle for the spot.

That's assuming this isn't all smoke, of course.
