  1. I found the articles on the Atlanta Falcons page on yardbarker.com can somebody tell me if that is a reliable site. They have alot of articles everyday. Here is the latest if it's a bad site let me know and I won't post anymore. I've been a member since before the first super bowl and still counted as a new member. I always read the forums but never post. Falcons were reportedly offered a first-round pick for Julio Jones, but not for next year Originally posted on SportsTalkATL | By Chase Irle | Last updated 6/4/21 At this point, I totally understand if you’re completely lost when it comes to the Julio Jones trade rumors. Some outlets are saying the Falcons will get a first-round pick and unload his entire salary, others say teams are offering a mid-round pick and asking Atlanta to eat a large portion of Jones’ salary. The truth most likely lies somewhere in the middle. It was reported last week by ESPN’s Dianna Russini that the Falcons have a first-round pick on the table for Jones. That very well may be true, but it doesn’t look like that first-round pick was for the next draft in 2022. Chris Mortenson reportedly said on 680 The Fan this afternoon that Atlanta was offered a first-round pick but it was for a future draft — I would assume in 2023. If I had to guess, the Falcons are probably debating between a 2023 first-round selection or a 2022 second-round pick. In either scenario, I would expect Terry Fontenot to rid of most — if not all — of Jones’ salary. Atlanta may seem desperate to trade Julio because of what occurred on FS1’s Undisputed, but they technically don’t have to. Terry Fontenot isn’t going to accept some lowball offer. This is a pivotal moment for a first-year GM, and he has to get it right. Accepting a mid-round pick and eating salary for one of the best receivers in the league is certainly not getting it right.
  2. Falcons reportedly mulling lowball offer for Julio Jones Originally posted on SportsTalkATL | By Alex Lord | Last updated 6/4/21 Josina Anderson, who is the host of Undefined, reported from a source last night that a team involved in the Julio Jones sweepstakes said, “everyone is giving (the Falcons) time to think about it…” Anderson mentioned that these comments come from a team that prefers to deal a high mid-round pick for Jones, while Terry Fontenot also absorbs a “good share” of the seven-time Pro Bowler’s salary. It’s becoming clear that the Falcons will have to choose between maximum financial relief and maximum draft capital. Teams aren’t going to want to give up a first-round pick without Atlanta taking on a share of the contract, but they seem to be willing to part ways with a second or third-round pick and take on the entirety of the contract. I’m not saying I agree with any of this. It’s just my take from the information provided. In reality, Fontenot shouldn’t and likely won’t trade the All-Pro receiver away for a bag of rocks. The entire point of this trade is to provide salary cap relief, and if Fontenot has to eat some of Jones’s salary, what’s the point? This can be a difficult situation for a first-time general manager, but I believe Fontenot won’t blink. I think Fontenot would rather have a disgruntled Jones on the roster knowing he might sit out rather than take some lowball offer to set the precedent general managers around the league can take advantage of him. He doesn’t seem like that type of individual. A “high mid-rounder” isn’t even close to what Julio Jones is worth, and if that’s what the market is baring, then I don’t think he’ll be traded.
  3. Happy Birthday Coach Smith!!!! Ready to see how high you can get the Falcons to soar.. We're all behind you and ready to see you bring us a Lombardi.
  4. I was joking. Till I figure out something for TF. lol I figured as much , but I don't want TD mentioned around a good player we want it may jinx it.
  5. All is well right now. Currently living at home with mom who will be 84 tomorrow and is as big a fan of football if not bigger. She's always yelling at the TV. One day a neighborhood boy was walking through the yard while she was watching a game and she yelled get him knock head off, I don't think kids stopped running yet.
  6. I've been here just as long. I've just always been a lurker I enjoy reading all the posts. I always wanted to go to Flowery branch for training camp or to catch a live game but I put it off to long and now I'm pretty much homebound in my Wheelchair. I was diagnosed in 1993 with a rare type of Muscular dystrophy.
  7. The best pair of running backs we had at one time was William Andrews and Lynn Cain. It was so much fun watching them run . I was a freshman in high school in 1980. Watching them 2 feed off of each other made them both better. They had great chemistry.
  8. Matt Ryan will have a great season with a HC that will build an offense around what he does best. Then these so called dedicated fans will say I knew he could do it all along. Fire away kids I'm too slow to try to run away <my chair doesn't roll that fast >. I've believed in MR since we drafted him and I still Believe .
  9. LOL Maybe they're letting this leak out so we get so worked up then they say what if we just do Rick Smith and Raheem Morris.
  10. I asked this same question a few weeks ago if he was drafted in the 2nd or 3d round and learned behind Ryan for a year or 2.
  11. I have a question would Desmond Ridder be worth drafting as a back up and maybe potential starter after learning from Ryan for a year or two??
  12. lol just tried my first attempt at ever making a mock draft. Don't know if is was from lack of sleep or pain meds kicking in ,but my trades went berserk ended up with 12 picks and this draft 30.Zach Wilson QB, BYU 36.Jayson Oweh EDGE, Penn State 43.Najee Harris RB, Alabama 49.Marvin Wilson IDL, Florida State 56.Cameron McGroneLB, Michigan 68.Hamsah NasirildeenS, Florida State 93.Jaelan PhillipsEDGE, Miami 105.Caden Sterns S, Texas 112.Tre' McKitty TE, Georgia 113.Merlin Robertson LB, Arizona State 118.Seth Williams WR, Auburn 170.Jack Jones CB, Arizona State
  13. Well didn't we give Dan Reeves Heart trouble on the way to the Super Bowl in 98?
  14. LOL I'd LOVE it if we shocked the WORLD and went undefeated won the Super Bowl and made the Dolphins Shove their bottle of Champagne where the sun don't shine.
  15. I plan on taping 2 channels and watching the 3rd just to see if the Falcons get more than 2 mins of air time.
  16. lol we're gonna draft Riley Ridley in the 2nd so we have both Ridley's on the team..../Purple
  17. Let's not forget the Father of one of our current players played at Valdosta State, and he was one **** of a linebacker.
  18. I was joking that's why I led off with lol. I've been through a few Hurricanes and hope to never have to go through anymore. Pretty much housebound in my wheelchair.So hopefully it will turn north.
  19. lol let them use the dome and jack up the prices of concessions to what they would be in their stadium. More money for Blank's pocket.
