Description: As expected, the Falcons have released safety Thomas DeCoud. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: The manuever saves Atlanta about $3 million in cap space. DeCoud didn't record an interception last season, though that's probably because most teams weren't brave enough to throw in his direction. He'll be one of the most coveted defensive backs on the market this offseason.

Description: The Falcons are expected to release free safety Thomas DeCoud before his salary increases from $2.3 million to $4.2 million five days after the new league year. SOURCE: Rand Getlin, Yahoo Sports
Insight: The next league year begins on March 11th, which means DeCoud will be unemployed in about two weeks. The 65 tackles DeCoud recorded this past season were his fewest since his rookie year in 2008. Despite this regression, he shouldn't have trouble finding a new team in free agency.

Description: Atlanta safety Thomas DeCoud injured his head in a collision with Packers running back Eddie Lacy on Sunday. SOURCE: Jay Adams, AtlantaFalcons.com
Insight: He won't return. DeCoud contributed two tackles before exiting. Zeke Motta is in at free safety.

Description: Falcons FS Thomas DeCoud was shaken up in Week 7 vs. Cincinnati after a helmet-to-helmet collision with Bengals RB Cedric Benson.
Insight: DeCoud will likely not be fined for this as he was actually the recipient. Because the NFL is so cautious with helmet-to-helmet hits, there's a chance he won't return to this game.
 
1/12/2010 11:43:00 PM
Description: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports DeCoud has been named the Falcons' 2009 defensive MVP by head coach Mike Smith.
Insight: Decoud started at SS this season and finished with 68 total tackles and three interceptions. (SportsBuff.com)
