Falcons | Sticking with Charles Godfrey, Dezmen Southward at safety
Atlanta Falcons FSs Charles Godfrey and Dezmen Southward are expected to stick as the free safeties in 2015, according to new head coach Dan Quinn. "I'm not really looking to build the team through free agency," Quinn said. "There's going to be guys that we added who are going to be part of it this year. But in terms of 'Oh man, we didn't get a guy in free agency,' that will never be the case. Put it this way: I don't worry about the guys who are not here." Southward might be moved to cornerback if Godfrey pans out or the team finds a starting free safety in the draft. Southward is spending his time this offseason working on press coverage.
