- Rapoport somewhat unsurprisingly adds that Vilma, if healthy, could fill in for the injured Sean Witherspoon.
Vilma, 32, hasn’t found any real interest this offseason, partly due to the fact that he has missed 25 games over the course of the past three seasons.
The sudden season-ending injury to Witherspoon could force Atlanta’s hand however. Internally, the Falcons could turn to Joplo Bartu or Paul Worrilow, two players who exceeded expectations last season, but neither has much experience.
We have Vilma ranked at No. 49 in our Top 50-Best Available Free Agents.
