Atlanta Falcons: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#20)

Last week: 18 (-2)

Record: 2-4

If the Falcons are serious about contending for a playoff spot this season, they should try to trade for the recently benched Tyson Clabo, who is currently with Miami. Clabo has been awfully thus far at right tackle in Miami and was rightfully benched, but he was very solid in Atlanta for many years before they cut him for cap reasons this off-season. It’s possible his age is the reason for his struggles, in his age 32 season, but it’s also very possible that the zone blocking scheme in Miami had a lot to do with it. He could still be a significant upgrade over Jeremy Trueblood and Lamar Holmes and he’d come very cheap. They could probably get him for a late round pick and force the Dolphins to eat a significant chunk of his the prorated remaining portion of his 2.5 million dollar salary.
