Falcons land Lelie

In the rare three-way-trade-that-is-actually-noteworthy Atlanta traded T.J. Duckett to Washington and received Ashley Lelie from Denver. Washington traded a third round pick to Denver.

This is either pure genius or absolut stupidity on the part of the Falcons (I'm leaning towards the latter). Lelie is the perfect fit for Vick but a horrible fit for the west coast offense the Falcons coaches have attempted to implement in Atlanta. In no way shape or form does Lelie fill the role vacated by the injured Brian Finneran, who was Vick's second security blanket (after Alge) the last couple of seasons.
