2016 NFL free agency: Falcons players who could be targeted by Jaguars

Are there any Falcons free agents that the Jaguars could be interested in?

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The soon-to-be rebuilding Atlanta Falcons have 18 free agents this offseason. With a good mixture of defenders and offensive linemen, are there any that could interest the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Here's a list of all the Falcons free agents this year, according to

Player Position Status Salary
William Moore S SFA $6,000,000
Justin Durant OLB SFA $3,600,000
Adrian Clayborn DE UFA $3,000,000
Chris Chester RG UFA $2,800,000
Kroy Biermann DE UFA $1,925,000
O'Brien Schofield OLB UFA $1,700,000
Jake Long LT UFA $1,568,750
Shayne Graham K UFA $970,000
Philip Wheeler ILB UFA $870,000
Tony Moeaki TE UFA $745,000
Phillip Adams CB UFA $745,000
Charles Godfrey S UFA $745,000
Bryce Harris LT UFA $720,000
Gion Gradkowski C UFA $646,106
Nathan Stupar ILB RFA $585,000
Paul Worrilow ILB RFA $495,667
Ryan Schraeder RT RFA $495,667
Ricardo Allen CB ERFA $427,500

I liked Ricardo Allen, but I think as a young player and an ERFA he gets a quick deal with the Falcons. Chris Chester is a stop-gap solution for the Falcons and the Jaguars are reportedly already interested in one of the better guards on the market in Jeff Allen. And while O'Brien Schofield is a fine player, his history of injuries will scare away most teams, leaving him in Atlanta for the foreseeable future.
