The Falcons have lost three key players to free agency this year.

First, wide receiver Taylor Gabriel cashed in on a four-year deal with the Bears. Defensive tackle Dontari Poe then signed a three-year deal with the Panthers, and last night defensive end Adrian Clayborn signed a two-year deal with the Patriots.

Next year, the Falcons may get compensatory draft picks for all of them. For now, they have some work to do.

Atlanta is expected to seek Poes replacement with an early-round pick in next months draft, and Takkarist McKinley will take a lot of Clayborns expected snaps. As for Gabriel, it seems the team believes his successor is already on the roster.

According to D. Orlando Ledbetter at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Falcons will look to either Marvin Hall or Reggie Davis to replace Gabriel as the teams resident deep threat.
