DEVANEY FLEES THE FALCONS

In a move that surprises no one (except maybe Rams fans), former Falcons assistant G.M. Billy Devaney has left the team and accepted a position with the Rams.

Devaney will be the Executive Vice President of Player Personnel in St. Louis. He has been installed above V.P. of player personnel Tony Softli, who was expected by some league insiders to be fired after a dismal 3-13 season.

But just as Devaney left Atlanta after he got a new boss, it's possible that Softli will now look for other opportunities, especially since he has essentially been demoted.

As one league source explained it, Devaney left the Falcons due to the perceived change in culture that will occur now that Tom Dimitroff has taken over as the team's G.M. Former G.M. Rich McKay, who has retained the title of team president, is expected to eventually depart as well.
