After a busy first day of free agency, the Falcons are back at work on Tuesday.

They are in need of a pass rusher, running back, left guard/center and cornerback. Whatever they don’t get in free agency, they will look to find in the draft.

You can scratch running back Melvin Gordon and linebacker Markus Golden off the list. Agents for both of those players told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that they have not heard from the Falcons.

Both of those players were popular among the Falcons twitter GMs, who refuse to believe the salary cap restraints that the team is under.

While the agent for linebacker De’Vondre Campbell has been laying low and has not responded to a set of emails over the past 12 hours.

Stay tuned.
