  1. Sixty-two players and one intrepid reporter got a crash course in Dan Quinn’s style of football last weekend, as Atlanta immersed its draft picks, rookie free agents and other hopefuls in the intricacies of play calls and coverages—and, most importantly, the philosophy of the hard-driving Falcons coach. By ANDY BENOIT May 15, 2019 Rookie minicamp offers a coaching staff the first chance to see and work with its new players, before the veterans arrive for OTAs. The Falcons held theirs this past weekend and gave us an all-access look. (Editor’s note: The names of plays in this st
  2. The holdout that Julio Jones has been downplaying, if not outright denying, became official this week as Jones informed the Falcons he’ll skip mandatory minicamp. When Jones signed his five-year, $71.3 million deal in 2015, he became the NFL’s second highest-paid wide receiver (behind Calvin Johnson, who would retire after that year), edging out Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas, who had recently signed new mega deals. Since then, the landscape has changed. Bryant is unemployed, and Thomas is considered good but not great. Jones has gotten even better, but seven other receivers now have higher a

Dates to remember: The franchise tag deadline is 4 p.m. on March 6. The “legal tampering” period for free agents starts on March 12, and free agents can officially sign deals at 4 p.m.
  4. Meh, normally Benoit is one of the better and more informed writers, but I'm not sure where he is getting this notion that Quinn runs one of the purer 4-3 schemes. In base we have always used a shade 1-tech NT, which isn't traditional at all, along with often walking the SS down into the box. And in nickel, it's true we often run a more traditional 3-tech and 2i alignment inside, but we've still often dropped one of the 5 DB's into the box to show what looks like a 4-3 even in nickel. And we play mostly nickel these day, upwards of 70%. And by definition, you can't run a 3-4 front in nick

  6. This is an older article written in 2014. The reason I'm posting this is because I'm trying to make a case for Quinn to sign former 1st round pick, Dee Milliner in the offseason and convert him to FS like the Saints did with Jenkins. I know he didn't pan out in New York but both Rex Ryan and Todd Bowles require their corners to play a lot of man to man. Something that doesn't fit Milliner at all. At Alabama he played better in zone. I would sign him to a deal like they did Upshaw, put him through the developmental program, and let him compete with Allen/a draft pick. No he wouldn't be
