Falcons RFA CB Robert McClain Could Draw Interest From Other Teams



Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com expects Falcons restricted free agent CB Robert McClain to draw interest from NFL teams, despite receiving an original-round tender earlier in the week.

Atlanta would gain just a seventh-round pick if McClain were to sign an offer sheet with a new teams and the Falcons elect not to match the offer.

McClure mentions that the Colts and Patriots could be two teams to watch in regards to McClain in the coming weeks.


Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that the Atlanta Falcons have tendered restricted free agent CB Robert McClain at low level.

  • This means McClain will make $1.431 million for the 2014 season.

McClain, 25, was a seventh round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers back in 2010, but was released at the start of the season. He would later sign with the Jaguars before ultimately joining the Falcons.

He appeared in 15 games for the Falcons last season and totaled 65 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles and one recovery.

McClain was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 61 cornerback in the league last season.

Once again it seems that my “Falcon Brass” continue to make all the right moves to get us to the Promise Land. The signing of McClain gives us the stability in the secondary that is needed, plus the depth on Special Teams. The commitment to give the people what they want, makes me proud to be a Falcon. Now let’s shake up the draft, AGAIN!!
