Falcons get their top target Tyson Clabo

The No. 1 offseason priority for the Atlanta Falcons was pretty simple: Keep right tackle Tyson Clabo in place.

Go ahead and check that thing off Tom Dimitroff’s list of things to do as the Falcons reportedly got Clabo done tonight, the first of a three-part puzzle on the offensive line.

Starting guards Harvey Dahl and Justin Blalock are also unrestricted free agents and in an ideal world the Falcons would keep the blocking five for quarterback Matt Ryan unchanged. But Clabo was the top target and that’s done. Time to move ahead in the fast-paced period of free agency we’re in.
