NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the Atlanta Falcons are planning on resigning a former Pac-12 OL on Tuesday. The Falcons have already made splashes in free agency and are making sure they keep this lineman around.
Kaleb McGary played college football at Washington from 2014 to 2018. The Falcons are reportedly looking at bringing McGary back on a three year, $34.5 million deal according to Rapoport.

McGary participated in all 17 games for the Falcons in 2022. McGary has done a good job of staying healthy since transitioning to the NFL, only missing a few games. It looks like the Falcons are trying to improve the offensive line for whatever QB lines up under center next season.
The team signed Taylor Heinicke away from the Washington Commanders and already have former Cincinnati QB Desmond Ridder on the roster as well.
While with the Huskies McGary earned some honors of his own. McGary was the Morris Trophy winner in 2018, as well as All-Pac-12 First Team in 2018 and 2017. The Morris Trophy annually goes to the top offensive lineman in the Pac-12 as voted on by opposing team players.
Atlanta missed the playoffs again after finishing the year at 7-10 for the second season in a row. Re-signing a lineman like McGary could go a long way for Atlanta.
