Pro Football Weekly reports that the Falcons are not moving forward in attempting to extend safety Lawyer Milloy’s contract until they can gauge the “team dynamic” after a few weeks of the upcoming season. Milloy is entering a contract year, meaning he will be a free agent next spring.
Milloy turns 35 in November, and per PFW is seeking to have his contract extended by at least one year. According to the report, if Milloy doesn’t receive an extension by the end of the year, he’ll likely decide to move on in free agency to a contending team.
Although none were explicitly mentioned, this could also be a stance the team is taking with other contract year players. That includes prospective unrestricted free agents linebacker Michael Boley, defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux, punter Michael Koenen, and wide receiver Michael Jenkins. Offensive linemen Tyson Clabo and Harvey Dahl both are set to become restricted free agents after this season.
