Injured pectoral muscle

DOL characterises it as "serious" and he will see a specialist on Monday.

Now officially out for the season

We have signed Mike Peterson (on the minimum salary - so cap hit of $540k) to back up Dent and provide depth at all three positions.

With Hansen out, there is still one opening for an UDFA to play on Special Teams and develop on the 53 man roster, unless Robert James is actually kept on the roster this year.

I still think bringing Peterson back isnt a bad call at all but man this is the last thing we need

Injured pectoral muscle (like Hansen)

http://blogs.ajc.com/atlanta-falcons-blog/2012/07/21/atlanta-falcons-lofa-tatupu-to-miss-start-of-camp/?cxntfid=blogs_atlanta_falcons_blog

DOL characterises it as "serious" and he will see a specialist on Monday.

While in contrast to most I'm fine with starting Dent and expected him to beat Lofa out anyway, our depth is now becoming a major concern (Spoon, Dent, Nicholas, Adkins + ????)

Hope TD has better options in a folder somewhere than "ring up Mike Peterson"...

Hansen tore his Patella Tendon in his knee...

Man that's unfortunate. Who do we call now? Do we just move James back to MLB?[/i]

I have confidence in Dent to take the starting role while Tatupu starts the season on PUP.

If hes out for the year I'd like to see us sign EJ Henderson or Gary.Brackett.

This is terrible news as we were already thin at LB depth. I say the best move as of right now would be bringing back Mike Peterson.

Some other names out there:
James Farrior
EJ Henderson
Xavier Adibi
Keith Brooking
Andra Davis
Ernie Sims
Omar Gaither
Gary Brackett

Apparently not. Still, a good move considering he is familiar with both our locker room and Mike Nolan.

Great presence in the locker room. Great leader on the field. Great personality on D-block. Very Happy
