Peter King visited camp last Friday, here's his takeaway

Quote

• In Atlanta, watch for the emergence of Austin Hooper. The third-year tight end from Stanford did this offseason what Julian Edelman did to force-feed himself to Tom Brady a few years ago—Hooper became Matt Ryan’s consistent workout partner, staying in the Atlanta area in the offseason so he could get on the same wavelength with his quarterback. It worked. They’ve been a great tandem so far in camp. “Hooper’s been like a dog this offseason—over and over, he’d catch everything Matt threw and bring it back,” said coach Dan Quinn. Ryan and his wife welcomed twin boys in April, so he stuck close to home through the off-season. So did Hooper. And anytime Ryan called looking for a throwing partner, Hooper was there. He had 68 catches in his first two pro seasons, and could have that many this season alone.

I like it if we get the backs back involved it's just gonna put so much more pressure on the opposing defense on top of us using motions pre snap 

Love it!! Need the backs to make plays in the passing game!! Can be such a dangerous weapon as it was in 2016. Remember how impressively the Falcons used Coleman to beat the Broncos defense time and time again?

This just fits with the everything else about how much Hooper and Ryan worked together to make sure they would be on the same page this year!! I'm excited about Hooper's potential to have a bust out season!!
