The Atlanta Falcons made a huge move on Monday before the start of free agency.
The Patriots are trading TE Jonnu Smith to the Falcons in exchange for a seventh-round pick. The move gives the Falcons a good player while the move clears up a big chunk of cap space for New England, as Smith’s salary was still guaranteed in 2023.
Jeremy Fowler adds Atlanta will restructure Smith’s contract as a part of the deal.
