  1. For those in the area, mini camp is open to the public.
  2. The Atlanta Falcons today announced that they have signed linebacker Boris Anyama. Anyama, 6-3, 232 pounds, played four seasons at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. During his time playing linebacker for the Ragin Cajuns, he recorded 100 total tackles (68 solo), 10.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and three forced fumbles. During his senior season in 2014, Anyama played in 13 games and tallied 43 total tackles (31 solo), 8.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles.

  4. Click the link and read Jay's article on it. Pretty good stuff IMO. http://www.atlantafa...e3-58bf616f8f68
  5. I really liked the podcast this week. They talked about: Rookies taking their lumps, feeding Freeman, Jake's move to RT, and prepping for tomorrow's game. Ferrin also mentioned the theme words for the week. Check it out. http://www.atlantafalcons.com/media-lounge/videos/FalconCast-Changes-at-Tackle/c765cae8-a2c0-45fa-b2a3-df21ca38e6d3
  6. 1. Ryan Efficient in Opener: The Falcons’ offense looked sharp in a 15-play opening drive that saw the entire first-team sans Julio Jones getting snaps. It took 77 yards but the Falcons got into the end zone on a 2-yard run byJacquizz Rodgers, but it was Matt Ryan’s prowess that got them there. Ryan was 7-for-7 on the drive for 53 yards and found Roddy White for three third-down conversion passes to keep the drive going. The scoring drive lasted 9 minutes, 16 seconds. Ryan was pulled in favor of TJ Yates after the drive. 2. Antone Smith Racks Up Yards — Sort Of: If the NFL was a penalty-free l
  7. Coaches Excited About Hester on Offense Jay Adams atlantafalcons.com Twitter Jay's Blog His name is synonymous with special teams greatness, but a new team for Devin Hester sounds like it's going to mean new opportunities for him offensively When news came of the addition of Devin Hester to the Falcons roster, offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter barely looked up. Hester came with the reputation of being perhaps the best returnman in NFL history but his offensive resume didn't exactly stand out. Once Hester arrived in Flowery Branch, all that changed. He's got Koetter's attention no
  8. http://www.atlantafa...17-670dd2fe8999 Here's what we learned from our conversations with them: BRYAN COX Cox said that Travian Robertson has benefitted from having Paul Soliai in front of him. Robertson has been a standout in the media's eyes and Cox has noticed the progression in his play so far during XFINITY® Atlanta Falcons Training Camp: "He's growing. He's learning. Having Paul here has certainly helped him out. Having Corey (Peters) in the background, not being able to practice has been helping him out. Guys are in the same room competing with each other, but helping each other because

  10. Peter King: The difference in the size of the lines, particularly on defense. (Paul) Soliai is potentially a huge difference-maker. Soliai and Tyson Jackson together on run downs, I mean, I just don't think you're going to be able to run very much on first down against this team. And then, I just want to watch (Jake) Matthews. I've never seen the guy and I just saw him stone the guy across him on seven straight plays going down the field. He's really an interesting guy because all along, the Falcons thought he's the guy who's most ready to play opening day, the most NFL-ready guy. I think they
  11. 1. Starr Trying to Shine in Camp: Defensive end Tyler Starr's name was heard quite a bit during rookie minicamp as his motor and style of play stood out among his fellow Rookie Club members. The offseason program saw Starr blend in a bit, but he's looking to get that momentum from rookie camp going into XFINITY Atlanta Falcons Training Camp. Starr has faced adversity in his football career, redshirting his sophomore year at South Dakota and scratching his way into the NFL as the second-to-final pick in the 2014 Draft. Starr has been splitting time at defensive end and outside linebacker in cam
  12. 1. Pads Go On: The first padded practice of 2014 XFINITY Atlanta Falcons Training Camp was high in energy and spirit, but head coach Mike Smith called it "OK" when asked following the session. He guessed that, after watching tape of the session, he'd notice a lot of high pad levels and technique issues, but that's what he expects out of his team on the first day of wearing pads. "That's something that we can correct, easily," Smith said. "The effort was outstanding, and the energy was very good, but some of the technical things we've got to make sure that we get corrected on tape." 2. Oklahoma
  13. 1. Biermann Handling Schedule Well: It took a bit of a sell job, but head coach Mike Smith said Saturday that he was able to get returning defensive end Kroy Biermann to accept a bit of a scaled back approach to his return to the field. In Week 2 of the 2013 season, Biermann went down with an Achilles injury that shelved him for the remainder of the campaign. While Biermann says he's feeling great through two days of camp, he understands that working his way back slowly will be better in the long run. "They know the best plan and they know what's best for my specific situation," Biermann said
  14. 1. White Locked In: In the days of free agency, it's so rare to see a player spend his entire career with one team, but that's the way things are shaping up for WR Roddy White, who penned his name to a four-year contract extensionjust before XFINITY® Atlanta Falcons Training Camp kicked off. White had a little zip in his step during the first session of camp Friday and it was likely a product of getting some big business out of the way. "When I first actually got to the league, I just wanted to play five years. It's crazy. It's just over time, you get to this point, it's been really, really go
  15. The quarterback position behind Matt Ryan looks vastly different as the Falcons head into 2014 Training Camp, and perhaps most importantly, there’s some experience behind Matty Ice as insurance. Ryan finished the 2013 campaign being hit more times than ever in his career while getting taken down for 44 sacks. Even still, he was able to finish in the top 5 in many of the NFL’s top passing categories, which should bode well for a 2014 season that features a revamped offensive line designed to protect the franchise quarterback. There’s still some youth behind Ryan, but with the addition of TJ Yat
  16. He's holding the line! Actor Michael Kelly may play the emotionless Doug Stamper on the Netflix hit show "House of Cards," but he's full of passion for the Falcons off the screen It’s mere months after the Falcons lost the NFC Championship game to the Philadelphia Eagles in early 2005 when Michael Kelly returned to the city where he was born to play one of his most challenging roles yet. It might seem like a native Philadelphian wouldn’t have such a hard time playing a role as an Eagles fan, but then again, ask Kelly where he’s from and he won’t say Philadelphia, and he certainly doesn’t clai
  17. HBO's Hard Knocks featuring the Atlanta Falcons is coming quickly as the first episode is set to air on Aug. 5, and the promotion has officially begun as HBO released The Buzz on Thursday — a video short of footage gathered from veteran minicamp. There will no doubt be much, much more video to see in the near future, but this will give you a first taste of what to expect in the coming months.

  18. Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon may be out for 2014 with an Achilles injury, but one of his teammates plans on leaning on him heavily this season The loss of Sean Weatherspoon for 2014 due to an Achilles injury suffered while recovering from a knee injury was a shock to fans and players alike. It's a two-fold hit to the defense: First, the Falcons lose Weatherspoon's on-field production which, when healthy, is right on par with expectations for a former first-round pick; Second, the team loses the leadership side that Spoon offers. Second-year linebacker Paul Worrilow has been embracing the latte
  19. The Falcons have so far been blanked on the NFL's list of Top 100 Players of 2014 as that countdown enters the top 20, but CBSSports.com's Pat Kirwan released his list Tuesday and it features three times as many Falcons as the NFL's list. Julio Jones, Matt Ryan and Roddy White were all named to Kirwan's top 100 — actually, top 50, if you're keeping score at home. Jones is Kirwan's highest-ranked Falcon, coming in at No. 25, just behind Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald. Ryan and White go back-to-back at Nos. 47 and 48, respectively, for Kirwan, just before Colts QB Andrew Luck and Seattle signal-call
  20. 1. Standout Player of the Day: Offensive tackle Jake Matthews. The rookie first-rounder isn't going to provide flash and inspire "oohs" and "ahhs" from the minicamp crowd, but he's proving to be impressive nonetheless. His technique, in particular, is impeccable, especially when going against players bigger than him. Facing Tyson Jackson, who has a low center of gravity and the ability to get under an offensive lineman, Matthews dropped his hips and kept his leverage during drills. Later in the same individual drills, he took on second-year DE Stansly Maponga and gave him a good toss. "Jake's
  21. The Atlanta Falcons today announced a partnership with FusionHealth, the leading provider of sleep health management solutions that improve employee health and wellness. Utilizing prevention-based strategies, FusionHealth will provide a comprehensive sleep management program to identify, treat and manage sleep disorders and sleep problems for the players, coaches and associates of the Atlanta Falcons. “In a highly-competitive business, we pride ourselves on seeking out the best technologies,” Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “FusionHealth provides that type of smart, leading-edge
  22. 1. Smith Offers More About Defense: The Falcons' defensive scheme for 2014 has been a hot topic of conversation among fans this offseason and head coach Mike Smith furthered the mystery behind it Saturday as he spoke about the different things the Falcons could do this year with a versatile bunch. We'll just let Smith take it from here: "We want to have a lot of flexibility. I think you see the trend is that there's no real true way that you displace your defenses. You can line up based on the down-and-distance and have no one with their hand in the ground. You can have three guys with their h
  23. http://blogs.atlanta...aining-buddies/ Morning Falconry: Alford Looking for Training Buddies January 10, 2014/in Jay's Blog /by Jay Adams Cornerback Robert Alford is looking to attack his second offseason with the Falcons with vigor and vengeance. His locker has been clean for less than two weeks, but the rookie is trying to gather up some interesting workout buddies for the work ahead. Alford made mention the day after the Falcons’ season finale that he’d be training this offseason with Pro Bowl safety Ryan Clark of the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I’m going to work on my technique. Right now, I’m
  24. He sat in a white, sterile room, arms splayed out in front of him, unable to move, his veins punctured by needles as tubes ran straight out of one arm, curled around and around and into a machine before another set of tubes would curl around and around on the way back to his other arm. Through the lengthy network of clear pipeline he watched as bright crimson life ran out and back into him — a sign of hope for a woman he had never met before. The hum of the machine was constant in the room, its motor whirring while separating out peripheral blood stem cells — and moment by moment, working to g
