Dontari Poe named among top available free agents

Former Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Dontari Poe was named one of ESPN’s top available free agents Wednesday by ESPN’s Jeff Darlington.

Along with Poe, who completed his first season with the Falcons in 2017, Darlington listed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, safety Tyrann Mathieu, cornerback Kyle Fuller, safety Eric Reid and wide receiver Jordy Nelson as the NFL’s top free agents.

After spending his first five years in the League with the Kansas City Chiefs, Poe recorded two deflected passes, 2.5 sacks, 23 tackles last season with the Falcons.

In late February, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff announced Poe would hit the open market after one season in Atlanta.
