  1. CHARLES ODUM Fri, May 14, 2021, 5:44 PM ATLANTA (AP) — Kyle Pitts did his best to sound like any other rookie just trying to fit in, even though he knows he's expected to play a high-profile role from his first game with the Atlanta Falcons. Modesty goes over well for a rookie, even one of the top selections in the NFL draft. Following Friday's rookie camp workout at the Falcons' facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia, Pitts said all the right things. Asked his expectations for the rookie camp, Pitts said: “Just to be the best player I can be and help this t
  2. Deen Worley Thu, March 25, 2021, 10:00 AM New Atlanta Falcons starting safety Erik Harris‘ journey to the National Football League is one that is made for theaters. The odds of making it to the NFL are already astronomical when taking the conventional route. Add in more obstacles and dead ends, those odds begin to plummet even lower. However, Harris’ perseverance and grit helped him realize his dream. After not receiving any offers to play football, Harris’ mom, Christine Higgins, took it upon herself to write a heartfelt letter to California Universit

  4. On Thursday morning, it was reported that the Falcons had re-signed defensive lineman Jacob Tuioti-Mariner, and then later in the afternoon, the team announced three more signings. Kicker Younghoe Koo, cornerback Tyler Hall and wide receiver Christian Blake have each been re-signed, the team announced via its Twitter account. Koo is fresh off a Pro Bowl campaign in 2020, his first full season as a starter. Hall was an undrafted free agent that ended up playing due to the injuries Atlanta suffered at the cornerback position. Blake got some playing time this season
  5. Scott Carasik Tue, March 2, 2021, 11:00 AM·3 min read The Falcons could solve a nearly decade-long need for an elite pass rusher with the selection of Azeez Ojulari. The former Georgia Bulldog was a highly productive player and is hoping to turn a ridiculous showing in the Peach Bowl into a first-round selection. Atlanta would be a great schematic fit for Ojulari as well.

  6. The Falcons have a new General Manager and new head coach tasked with turning around a team that finished 4-12 in 2020. That’s not going to be the easiest task, especially as Atlanta is one of the teams currently slated to be over the projected 2021 salary cap. But earlier this week, G.M. Terry Fontenot talked about how the Falcons’ personnel staff will have to be at its best to make the most of the team’s roster. “We’re going to have to find players because you can’t just build your roster with overpaid players in free agency or top draft picks. We have to really dig a
  7. Longtime NFL defensive assistant Dean Pees retired for the second time following the 2019 season. This retirement lasted a year, rather than just a few weeks like in 2018. But Pees said late last month that he un-retired to work with new Falcons head coach Arthur Smith. Smith and Pees worked together on the Titans’ staff from 2018-2019, the latter year serving as offensive and defensive coordinator, respectively. So there’s familiarity and trust between the two men, which is critical for Smith as a first-year head coach. “Dean’s body of work kind of speaks for itself. B
  8. if he comes cheap i wouldn't hate it. not a great starter but could be a decent backup, granted matt has been one of the most durable qb's in the nfl during his career.
  9. solid contributor and decent leader of the secondary. wish him well.
  10. Matt Urben Wed, February 17, 2021, 2:11 PM·1 min read Despite addressing the position in the first round of the 2020 draft, the Atlanta Falcons still have a need at the cornerback spot. According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the Falcons were one of six teams to hold a virtual meeting with Florida State cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. Analysts expect Samuel Jr. to be drafted somewhere between the second and third rounds. In 2020, he finished with 22 tackles, three interceptions, six passes defended, two fumble recoveries
