The Atlanta Falcons have brought back Adrian Clayborn on a one-year deal and John Fricke and Hugh Douglas think that signing has more than just an on-field impact.

John Fricke claims he now knows what the Falcons draft plan is. 

"This to me is almost like a leading indicator; the Atlanta Falcons tipping their hand as if we had any question anymore, where they're going in the draft," said Fricke. "They're absolutely going defensive line. They want Adrian Clayborn to get in there with Senat and whomever they draft, McKinley and Beasley to be that kind of Dwight Freeney presence in the locker room."

Hugh Douglas doesn't agree with the Freeney comparison because Clayborn can really produce. 

"I think he's here because you need some pass rush," said Douglas. "Adrian still has a little more (than Freeney) left in the tank."
