PfSense as edge router

So I have two 100Mbps Metro-E lines getting installed next week. We currently are using a Sonicwall NSA2400 for our firewall.
I'm trying to "introduce" pfSense slowly into the org with a plan of it eventually taking over VPN and likely Firewall duties from the Sonicwall. Users are using the Sonciwall Global VPN client to connect from home/road. I don't want to have to reconfigure all the users at once to OpenVPN. A slow move works best for me.
I'm thinking of using pfSense as the edge router in front of the Sonicwall. I'm not real clear on how I do this.
I know I turn off Automatic NAT-Change that to Manual NAT. I also turn off firewalling. So I'm thinking this
One of the Metro-E is providing me 14 usable public IPs the other metro-E isn't providing any IPs (just one for my wan router). I presume that my Gateway entry on the Sonicwall is the pfSense box.
Is this something reasonable to do?
Any input is appreciated.
