The Atlanta Falcons are playing a game of wait-and-see when it comes to the future of Tony Gonzalez.
But a decision from the future Hall of Fame tight end is not stalling offseason work for the Falcons, who have “ramped up” negotiations with safety William Moore and left tackle Sam Baker, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Ledbetter reports the Falcons have $20.5 million in cap room right now. They have plenty of work to do. Moore and Baker are priorities, along with Gonzalez, and they also need to consider a long-term extension for quarterback Matt Ryan this year.
It will be interesting to see if the Falcons can get deals in place for Moore and Baker before free agency kicks off at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
