1: Atlanta Falcons
Perhaps the most obvious potential landing spot, the Atlanta Falcons would seem to be the front-runners to land Jackson should he choose to leave Baltimore. The Falcons have the second-most available cap space across the league, and may be on the outside looking in in regards to landing a quarterback in this year’s draft.
The Falcons already possess a ton of young offensive talent, including Tyler Allgeier and Drake London, both of whom were rookies last season, as well as Kyle Pitts, who has had a somewhat disappointing start to his career with the Falcons. Adding Jackson would not only provide the Falcons the opportunity to double down on their run-heavy offense from a season ago, but could also untap some of the Pitts’ potential, as he could be relied on in a Mark Andrews-type role.
Outside of the on-field chemistry, Jackson could favor the Falcons as a landing spot due to his admiration for Michael Vick, as well as the opportunity to play in one of the weaker divisions across the league. Atlanta said it will not pursue Jackson, but we’ve heard this story before. Keep an eye on the Falcons entering into the sweepstakes.
