Hayden Hurst hopes to become the latest TE to have success in Dirk Koetter’s offense

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Hurst has a real shot to follow in the footsteps of Cameron Brate and Austin Hooper. Hayden Hurst is fully aware he’s stepping into a huge opportunity in Atlanta. In Baltimore, the former first round pick was buried on the depth chart behind breakout star Mark Andrews and uber-blocker Nick Boyle. With the Falcons, he’s likely the unquestioned starter, with the 90+ targets Austin Hooper saw last year heading his way. That’s probably why he sounds pretty excited in a new interview with The Athletic’s Jason Butt. In it, Hurst says he always plays at 100 miles...

Falcons sign former XFL TE Khari Lee

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Formerly of the DC Defenders, Lee now gets his shot at the big leagues. The Falcons tight end room is going to look very different in 2020. The departure of Austin Hooper and the release of Luke Stocker left only Jaeden Graham as the only carry over from 2019. The trade for Hayden Hurst has helped fill the Hooper void but it was clear the team needed to find at least one more body, if only for camp. Well, the team has dipped into the XFL waters and signed former DC Defenders tight end Khari Lee. We have agreed to terms with TE Khari Lee. -...

Falcons fans give team B grade for offseason thus far

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ That grade will move as time goes on and the Falcons make more additions and either nail or ruin their draft class. With the decision to keep the current regime in place, Atlanta’s “we’re not out of money but we’re letting Austin Hooper and De’Vondre Campbell walk” routine, the exciting and unexpected signings of Dante Fowler and Todd Gurley, and the cuts for Devonta Freeman and Desmond Trufant, it’s been a whiplash-inducing offseason for the Falcons. Given that, and given that the initial flurry of free agent moves seems to be dying down, I thought...

Falcons add depth, intrigue with flurry of Sunday signings

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, WR Laquon Treadwell, and OL Justin McCary will all get a shot to contribute. The Falcons made their three big moves last week. The addition of Hayden Hurst gave them a potential Austin Hooper replacement, the signing of Todd Gurley a jersey seller and potentially terrific back if healthy, and the big deal for Dante Fowler a high-upside pass rusher who could help transform the defense if all goes well. I wouldn’t bet on all those moves working out—Hurst is relatively unproven, Fowler had one big year, and Gurley’s knee concerns have only...
