Honestly, it's not that big of a risk for Atlanta. Duckett was in the last year of his contract as well, so the "dust in the wind" comment really has no merit. They were essentially renting him for a year, too; they simply traded one lease for another. If Lelie does not resign, it won't be that big of a deal, because Duckett probably wasn't going to resign either. The gamble is that Dunn, at 31, will stay healthy and effective. I think he'll be OK for one more year.
