Falcons to seek help on the interior line of scrimmage

Here are some names at offensive line to keep in mind as we get closer to free agency.

Offensive linemen who will be free agents - as rated by NFL.com's Top 99 free agent list:

Kelechi Osemele - OG - Baltimore Ravens
He'll be 27 this June. A four-year veteran out of Iowa State, he's Osemele has become an elite run blocker. 

Alex Boone - OG - San Francisco 49ers
At 6-8, 300, he's huge and has a nasty streak. Boone turns 29 in May, and he's been with the 49ers for six years. He's been a starter for the last four years.

Richie Incognito - OG - Buffalo Bills
Yes, that Richie Igcognito. He had a good year for the Bills, but he's reportedly wanting too much money for their liking. 

Ramon Foster - OG - Pittsburgh Steelers
Don't the Steelers always have good guards? Foster is 6-5, 328 pounds. He's been a solid five-year starter and has missed just four games in that span. Foster just turned 30 in January.

Brandon Brooks - OG - Houston Texans
Turns 27 in August. Has started the last three seasons, missing only four games. Brooks is 6-5, 335.

Evan Mathis - OG - Denver Broncos
He's 34 years old, but Mathis has played in the zone blocking scheme. Wouldn't they be better off keeping Andy Levitre?

Jahri Evans - OG - New Orleans Saints
The Falcons have brought in others from the enemy, so it wouldn't be unusual. Evans started for 10 years in New Orleans. He'll be 33 this August and is 6-4, 318 pounds.

Steve Wisniewski - C - Jacksonville Jaguars
He'll turn 27 later this month. Got a one-year deal last year after shoulder surgery. He did not miss a game in 2015. Wisnieski spent four seasons in Oakland. The center market is not strong, so there will be competition for his services.
