Christian Wilkins would be a good addition to a young team that changed their direction and the Falcons make a lot of sense.

The Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons are expected to have a little over $20 million in cap space. In 2023, the Falcons ranked 20th against the run. Something they need to fix heading into 2024. The NFC South is a wide-open division and the Falcons can stake a claim to it if they can fix parts of the defense.

Wilkins would be a big catch for the Falcons. He would immediately improve the defensive front and would bring leadership to the roster.

The Carolina Panthers

The Panthers are a mess and they may not be a team that can entice Wilkins without overpaying. A new coaching staff will help but Wilkins also wants to win and the Panthers are not in a position to do that just yet.

The Panthers were 23rd against the run in 2023 so Wilkins would be a huge help on the defensive line.

Carolina has money to spend. They are projected to be over $25 million in cap space before moves are made. The Panthers' new GM and HC along with DC Ejiro Evero are trying to build up the Panthers. The division isn't a one-team division and a team like the Panthers could turn it around quickly but quickly in Carolina could be another year or two.
