The Atlanta Falcons find themselves scrambling to find replacements for linebacker Sean Weatherspoon who ruptured his Achillies’ tendon on Tuesday.
Jonathan Vilma is one player that the Falcons reportedly are taking a look at as a replacement.
The 32-year-old Vilma has been plagued by knee issues for years and has been a liability when on the field.
