Outside linebacker is one unit at which the Falcons enjoy a little bit of depth, with Mike Peterson, Sean Weatherspoon, and Stephen Nicholas all thought of as starter quality by the team’s coaching staff. Not that any of those three are going to be traded.
Backups Coy Wire and Spencer Adkins could be considered. Wire is one of the Falcons’ primary special teams leaders, earning a captaincy last year, so he's almost certainly staying put. Adkins hasn’t contributed a whole lot, making only four career tackles and generally being considered a long-term project.
The Falcons are going to be wary of letting any players go for future draft picks, as they believe this team is built to compete right now. But if they’re not using Adkins anyway…
Plus, the Falcons and Texans have done business before. Maybe Spencer Adkins for a decent draft pick can be thought of as a thank you for the great Matt Schaub gifting?
