A selection of the latest Falcons news and blog posts.
Atlanta Falcons: Is Julio Jones becoming an all-time great wide receiver? Where would you put Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones with the rest of the class of receivers in league history? Does he qualify for the Hall of Fame? Well, I'd put him in the top ten all time and say he's a first ballot Hall of Famer.
Dan Quinn getting used to balancing new duties at helm of Falcons defense It'll be great for Quinn to take advantage of this time to get used to thing before training camp starts, and we're all hoping this is the solution that solves a few key issues that have hampered the DQ Falcons in the past.
Recently, we've gotten a better look at the Falcons behind the scenes In some way, yes, because the primary beneficiary of this kind of reporting tends to be readers like you and I who are eager to know more about the inner workings of the team, rather than…well, the team that already knows the inner workings of the team.
A post-draft review of the Falcons’ DE position He's got the potential to be a sound long-term pass rusher in the NFL, and the team certainly has invested in that possibility. We'll see if he gets there. Takkarist McKinley also enters a pivotal campaign. His rookie year and the start of his second season signaled a major arrival, but he faded down the stretch in impact last fall.
An unconventional Falcons 2019 season preview This is a constant topic of conversation among our writers, and we decided to share our thoughts about the upcoming season with you in visual form. I've spent nearly every offseason thinking the Falcons got it right and this will be the year. I've been wrong every year.
One free agent the Atlanta Falcons should still target this offseason Which one player left in free agency should the Atlanta Falcons still consider trying to sign to bolster their roster ahead of training camp?
Ra'Shede Hageman is making his case early, but what kind of role might he have? Hageman has always had the talent to be a key player, but there’s a lot working against him at the moment.
Broncos-Falcons listed among top NFL preseason games to watch The Broncos’ showdown with the Falcons in the Hall of Fame Game ranks among the top NFL preseason contests to watch this summer.
A post-draft review of the Falcons QB position The team realized this and used two first round picks on offensive linemen and signed a handful of offensive linemen in free agency. I know we're all hoping this keeps Ryan upright in 2019. In the last two seasons as a Falcon, Matt Schaub has thrown 10 passes.
Can the Falcons break their streak of odd year futility in 2019? The Falcons are better positioned, depth-wise, to weather injuries this year, and the overall talent level on the roster is better than it was a year ago and even in 2017. That should suggest the Falcons are well-positioned to bounce back, but as Falcons fans, we've learned that there are no guarantees in that regard.
Nicolas Claxton: Atlanta Hawks to work out UGA basketball star Former UGA star Nicolas Claxton will work out for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. Unlike the Atlanta Falcons, which seem to go out of the way to pass on former Bulldogs in the NFL draft at every opportunity - the Hawks have some serious UGA connections.
Mike Conti Previews Atlanta Falcons Mike Conti of 92.9 The Game in Atlanta joins Krisitan to preview the Falcons and what's happening during mini-camp.
Roddy White among the 10 best WR's from 2005-2015 On the onset, it is easy to dismiss just how good Roddy White actually was during his NFL career. Playing for a franchise like the Falcons, he was an afterthought for most fans and NFL media. Initially, some of you may take that as a slight to Atlanta and it is, but not for the reasons you may think.
A post-draft review of the Falcons TE position The team has been content to use him as a chain-mover, especially during a 2018 season where he averaged under 10 yards per reception, but his ability to vacuum up targets, block well and occasionally put his plus athleticism to use in a rumble downfield has made him a valuable cog in the offense.
3 priorities for the Atlanta Falcons entering training camp An in-depth analysis at the top three priorities that the Atlanta Falcons must focus on entering training camp ahead of the 2019 season.
Michael Vick: Expect 2019 Falcons to 'go deep' in the playoffs You can expect to see the Falcons go deep in the playoffs again." Atlanta played in five playoff games the previous two years, but only finished 7-9 last season and missed out on the postseason. Living up to Vick's prediction will require a few things:.
Do the Falcons have the NFL's best WR corps? As we've just established, Julio Jones is the best WR in football. Having the best WR in the league as your WR1 already gives you a significant leg up on the competition. WR2: Calvin Ridley. Ridley has perhaps the most potential of any WR2 heading into the 2019 season, coming off an electric 2018 that saw him post a ridiculous 10 TDs.
Matty Ice Moments: Matt Ryan’s first ever division title Ryan took that step forward and then some - leading the Falcons to their most successful regular season since the Super Bowl year of 1998. It all started out so poorly, too - a 15-9 overtime loss to quarterback Dennis Dixon's Pittsburgh, where the offense failed to find the end zone.

The highest paid Atlanta Falcons players in 2019 The Atlanta Falcons have a lot of talented players on the roster, and a number of bargains, but they are also on the hook for some big money to their top playmakers. Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, and Devonta Freeman predictably top the list of players who are getting the most money, but there are other important contributors on this list, as well.
Calvin Johnson visited the final day of Falcons minicamp On Thursday, former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson attended the Atlanta Falcons 3rd day of minicamp. He was seen on the field talking to owner Arthur Blank, head coach Dan Quinn and several players. As Calvin Ridley told ESPN's Vaughn McClure:.
The Atlanta Falcons should avoid switching to a 3-4 defense In order for the Atlanta Falcons to convert into a 3-4 defense they have to make changes with their personnel and do not have the cap space to do so. The Falcons have a daunting task of re-signing Julio Jones, Grady Jarrett and Deion Jones to new contacts in the near future.
