Falcons | Sean Weatherspoon to have expanded role

Atlanta Falcons weakside LB Sean Weatherspoon's role will expand this season under new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. "I'm not sure exactly what I'll be doing all of the time," Weatherspoon said. "I'm definitely looking forward to the challenge. I think I'm ready for that, to do a little bit more and step out there and do some different things. I look forward to the challenge. I think it's going to be fun." Weatherspoon had a breakout campaign in 2011, finishing with 127 tackles, four sacks, one fumble recovery, one fumble recovery, eight passes defensed and led the team with 14 tackles for losses.
