The Falcons have re-signed longtime center Todd McClure to a one-year deal.
This puts me at ease for the upcoming season. I was fearful of Joe Hawley being the starter since the Falcons had yet to re-sign McClure. In the action Hawley saw at center this past season, he wasn’t impressive. Of course, that’s understating it a bit, but having McClure back is pretty significant.
Now, I’m not trying to propose that a 35-year-old McClure is an All-Pro center, but he’s certainly a quality starter. Plus, he’s been Matt Ryan’s center since Ryan’s rookie year.
Let’s hope the Falcons can get him the Super Bowl ring he wants and undoubtedly deserves.
