Admit it, when the Falcons signed cornerback Robert McClain in the offseason you had one of two thoughts: “Why does Atlanta need another cornerback with the signing of Asante Samuel?” or, more likely, “Who the heck is Robert McClain?”

Both thoughts were completely justifiable. Brent Grimes had been with the Falcons since 2007 and had been producing for them since 2008.
