01:24 PM ET 03.07 | Lawrence Sidbury played a total of 31 snaps for the Atlanta Falcons in 2012. According to his agent, Alan Herman, that figure isn't exactly and enticing proposition to re-sign with the team that draft him Sidbury back in 2009. The former Richmond Spider is reportedly ready to move on to a new home. Herman told D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC his client isn't searching for a new contract from the Falcons. Sidbury was in for a whopping 2.94 percent of the defensive plays called last season. He forced one hurry on an opposing quarterback, so, there's something to hang your hat on. His four sacks in 2011 presumably pointed towards an increase in playing time for his fourth season. He played a career-high 220 snaps that year. Positive results did not transpire, though, and Sidbury's in-game action quickly depleted with a new defensive coordinator in place.

Before I saw this, I had no idea who Lawrence Sidbury was.

It looks like he's not leaving, it looks more like he's going to get thrown out of town!

Maybe he will get an opportunity to play if he signs with another team, in CANADA.
