Atlanta

Nobody wants to see a young talent head to a division rival, but this move would make sense for the Falcons.

Williams would provide an immediate upgrade over Ricardo Allena and Demontae Kazee. Pairing the rangy Williams with the likes of Keanu Neal would give Atlanta a very young and talented defensive backfield.

The big hindrance in this situation is Atlanta much like New Orleans is dealing with a pretty tough cap situation, so they would need to look at moving some heavy contracts to make this a reality.

There’s no denying with a top-ten pick in the 2021 NFL Draft they may look to move on from Matt Ryan. Even Julio Jones could be an option to move after a less-than-stellar season. The Falcons need to work on their defense, and Williams would be a solid option for them.

The Saints may not be able to best another top offer if one comes in for Williams.
