  1. By D. Orlando Ledbetter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Signing guard Jamon Brown to a three-year, $18.75 million contract was an expensive mistake for the Falcons, who released him Monday. “Just the fact that we met with him and said that at this point it was hard to work all of the guys through the competition,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday. “Plus, it was a chance to get him started somewhere else. We wanted to give him the opportunity to do that.” Bro
  2. The Falcons worked on their low and high red zone offensive attack and special teams on Sunday. Here are some observations and notes from the practice: --Defensive end Takk McKinley was limited in practice. He took part in the individual drills, but did not take part in the 11-on-11 part of practice. He’s coming back from offseason shoulder surgery . --Offensive guard Jamon Brown, who was in the concussion protocol, was on the field and is in the final stages of working his way back. --Running back Qadree Ollison d

That is if he wants to pursue that route. Entering his sixth season as the Falcons’ linebackers coach, he added an assistant head coach title to his resume this offseason. Having played linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers from 2000-09, Ulbrich i

The figures, provided by the Falcons to the Georgia World Congress Center Authority and obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution through an open-records request to the GWCCA, represent the remaining amount that was owed when PSL holders quit making payments on thousands of seats. The PSLs are fees, often paid in installments over multiple years, for the

Punter Sterling Hofrichter, a seventh-round pick from Syracuse, put on a clinic, while kicker Younghoe Koo, was 2-of-3 on his field-goal attempts. The offense, which had big runs from Todd Gurley, Ito Smith and Brian Hill, continued to struggle with timing in the passing game. Backup quarterback Matt Schaub was intercepted in the end zone by corne

He wasn’t asked to attend the NFL scouting combine. But upon looking at his statistics at LSU, it’s understandable to see why he was passed over, as the numbers didn’t add up to much. After moving from cornerback to receiver in 2016, Gage accrued 347 receiving yards, 232 rushing yards and five total tou

It's a DLed artical, so take it for what's it worth.... https://www.ajc.com/sports/atlanta-falcons/dimitroff-dealing-upside-down-2021-salary-cap/5BNKBRP6QFA45D4OT6PPE3VAQQ/ The NFLPA (the player’s union) and the NFL reached an agreement recently to set the salary cap floor at $175 million for next season. The salary cap is at 198.2 million for the 2020 season and was projected to reach $210 million in 2021. However, because of the pandemic, each NFL team is projected to lose at least $130 million in revenue this season, according to NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smit

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced much of the U.S. either to work from home or take extra precautions when forced to go into an office. That also has been the case for the NFL. And when it comes to the Falcons, coach Dan Quinn already advised the players to be responsible once they leave the team facility. For Jarrett, being asked to stay home by his boss isn’t a problem at all. He now has

I’m 100%. I have no problems right now. I’m ready to go.” Ridley will enter the 2020 season as the Falcons’ unquestioned No. 2 receiver. “Well, I guess my first year I guess I was the three,” Ridley said. “Last year, we had Mohamed Sanu and Julio. Now, I’m coming in, it’s me and Julio. I think there should be some extras balls flying and some extra yards. It should probab

Editor’s note: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution catches up with former Atlanta sports figures in this occasional series. Today: Bryan Cox Former Falcons defensive line coach Bryan Cox has been doing a lot of soul-searching since he was fired three days after the team’s historic collapse in Super Bowl LI. Cox, 52, who wants to get back into coaching, is still waiting for his phone to ring. Cox was credited with helpi

But if you’re looking for someone who can embrace enforced change and still find reasons to be cheerful, Dan’s your man. The Falcons’ coach held a 30-minute video call via Microsoft Teams on Wednesday. He seemed in his element, and not just because he was displayed at a desk beneath a mantel lined with football helmets. He was in his element because – unlike other footb
  13. https://www.ajc.com/blog/mike-check/falcons-right-let-hooper-seek-payday-elsewhere/pgzKTvj0I3DQNq8Kak2vjP/ Austin Hooper is a very good tight end who had a career season in 2019. The Falcons still decided they won’t offer Hooper a contract before he becomes a free agent next month. Salary-cap restraints may have forced their hand but, either way, the Falcons are making the right move to let Hooper reach the market. Hooper has been a very productive player for the Falcons but he’s more possession pass-catcher than big-play producer. Hooper had 75 catches for 787 yards and six
  14. One NFL Beat Reporter Had The Worst Mason Rudolph-Myles Garrett Take: TRAINA THOUGHTS BY JIMMY TRAINA , NOV 15, 2019 1. We now live in a world where it's completely routine for people to tell you that you didn't see something that you actually saw with your own two eyes. What happened last night was as simple and as straight-forward as it gets. Myles Garrett took a football helmet and tried to slam it on top of Mason Rudolph's head. Nothing else needs to be explained. Nothing else needs to be said. Nothing else matters.
  15. https://www.ajc.com/sports/football/mack-looks-help-falcons-get-back-track/6EAirS1PMCacPDRne4moVP/ FLOWERY BRANCH — Alex Mack has played in more NFL games than every Falcon other than Matt Ryan and lived more losses than most could stomach, but even with all that, the center hasn’t enough knowledge to offer post-graduate level advice for teammates carrying a six-game losing streak to New Orleans. That’s because when you’re on a 1-7 team that kicked off with high expectations, all the losing is so confusing. The Saints (7-1) will greet a team dropping from a cloud of ques

And when the team you own just had more points scored on it than in any game since 2004, when the defense “coordinated” by your head coach couldn’t have stopped a grandfather clock this day much less Deshaun Watson, that says something about just how miserable the No. 1 ordeal was. But we’ll not dredge up that 2017 Super Bowl again. That’s unnecessarily rou

Orlando Ledbetter The Atlanta Journal-Constitution FLOWERY BRANCH — Here are five quick questions with Falcons linebackers coach Jeff Ulbrich: Q: How’s the linebacker group doing after two exhibition games?

It gets drunk on success. Strengths are exaggerated, flaws overlooked. “You become somewhat addicted to victory

Orlando Ledbetter - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Falcons coach Dan Quinn and his staff have done a great deal of experimenting with position changes this offseason. With the team’s mandatory minicamp set for Tuesday through Thursday, those experiments are nearing an end. The staff will then have six weeks to evaluate those moves before the players report for training camp on July 27. Here are five position battles to keep an eye on during minicamp: 1. Right c

OK, it's from DOLt so take it with a huge grain of salt, but there are surprisingly a few nuggets of useful information in here. http://atlantafalcons.blog.ajc.com/2016/05/11/cover-99-which-undrafted-player-is-going-to-make-the-team/ Cover 9@9: Which undrafted player is going to make the team? D. Orlando Ledbetter May 11, 2016 1. Meet J.D. McKissic. Falcons undrafted rookie J.D. McKissic, who played at Arkansas State, has been described as a wide receiver with running back skills by his former coach Gus Malzahn. McKissic, 5-foot-11, 193 pounds, had a tremendously producti
  21. I think these comments rule out what was already a small possibility of Jarrett bulking up and taking over the NT role that Soliai played last year. It seems the Falcons still view him as a nickel pass rushing DT and possible 3-tech in the base defense. It seems the only real candidates for that NT spot now are still TJax and Mbu. Although if Jarrett is eventually able to step up into the starting 3T role, that would free up Hageman to move to NT if neccessary.
