Thomas DeCoud: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
DeCould will start at free safety in 2012, and he's coming off a successful 2011 campaign where he notched 86 tackles and four interceptions. He's increased his tackles total each of the last three years, and looks to be in line for another successful season. He should be expected to notch 80 total tackles and a handfull of interceptions.
DeCoud will start at free safety for the Falcons in 2011. Last season he racked up 74 tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception, and we can expect similar numbers out of him this season. Opponents may be throwing more as the Falcons' offense will put up a bunch of points this season, so 80-85 tackles isn't out of the question.
Decoud will start at free safety after solidifying that position in 2009 with 57 tackles.
Slated to begin the season as the replacement for Lawyer Milloy at strong safety, but DeCoud is going to have to fight off a slew of willing defensive secondary players in training camp to keep his job.
DeCoud will be the back up free safety in 2008, with some chance to play in nickel and dime formations pending his performance in training camp.
