Offensive line is a major need for the Falcons this offseason and they’ve reportedly landed a player that they hope can provide better blocking at guard than they got last season.

Former NFL scout and current 95.7 The Game in San Francisco radio host John Middlekauff reports that the Falcons signing guard Jon Asamoah for $4.5 million a year is a “done deal.” There’s no word on how many years such a deal would run or how it would be structured in terms of guarantees.

Asamoah was drafted in the third round of the 2010 draft by then-Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli. Pioli now works in the Atlanta front office, which probably didn’t hurt as they pursued Asamoah over the last few days.
