  • Falcons land Dontari Poe

Another domino has fallen in the defensive tackle market, with Dontari Poe agreeing to a one-year, $8 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons. He was originally selected by the Chiefs in the first-round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Memphis. It is reportedly a one-year deal worth $8 million that could increase to $10 million with incentives.

Chiefs coach general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid made it clear at the NFL Scouting Combine that they wanted Poe back.

The Vikings signed Oakland running back Latavius Murray early Thursday after a long night of negotiations. Pioli is an executive in the Falcons front office alongside Thomas Dimitroff, the team's general manager.

Chiefs fans don't wish any ill will towards Poe. Barwin played under Phillips in Houston before spending the past two years with the Eagles. He also produced one forced fumble and three pass defenses while helping the franchise once again reach the postseason.

The theory becomes reality when looking at the head-to-head record between these two high-profile managers. We usually win good games, but the bad games and the average games we need to be challenging too.

In 2016, Poe didn't miss a snap as he recorded a career-high nine pressures in 885 snaps, 16th-most among all National Football League defensive linemen, to go along with 27 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks.

An athletic player for his size, the Chiefs also used Poe on offense, where he recorded a rushing touchdown in 2015 and 2016, and threw a touchdown pass in 2016.

The Colts will need to move on from Poe to find more help along the defensive line, but it appeared as if they were already doing that this morning even before Poe's decision was announced.
