As June 1 nears, Deion Jones seems likely to be on the move

Photo by Jamie Squire/ The last remaining building block of a fast and physical regime long forgotten may soon be leaving Atlanta. As part of finally turning the page on the Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff era, the new duo of Arthur Smith and Terry Fontenot have made a number of tough choices. Franchise players like Matt Ryan and Julio Jones were traded, while Calvin Ridley almost was. Russell Gage, Keanu Neal, Damontae Kazee, and Foye Oluokun were more home-grown players who are now on different teams. Those losses hurt, whether they were expected or not. Another...

The Falcons have built an extremely tall group of pass catchers

Following the suspension of Calvin Ridley and the decision to let Russell Gage walk, it became apparent that the Falcons had to totally rework their wide receiver’s room. After all, there was no way they were going to go into the season with Olamide Zaccheaus and Frank Darby as their top two wideouts. Now after […] The Falcons have built an extremely tall group of pass catchers - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Falcons 2022 post-draft roster review: Offensive line

Falcons 2022 post-draft roster review: Offensive line

Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via A line full of question marks. The Falcons have rebuilt their offense on the fly this offseason. Calvin Ridley, Matt Ryan, Mike Davis, Russell Gage, and Hayden Hurst are all gone—Ridley could be back next year after his suspension, but I have my doubts—and they’ve been replaced with draft picks and free agents. The skill positions are going to look very different in 2022, with Kyle Pitts, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Olamide Zaccheaus being among the few familiar faces. The offensive line, however, is mostly the same as...

Falcons 2022 post-draft roster review: Wide receiver

Falcons 2022 post-draft roster review: Wide receiver

Photo by Keith Birmingham/MediaNews Group/Pasadena Star-News via Atlanta added a No. 1 receiver in the draft, but is that enough to change the outlook of this position group? The Falcons have undergone a lot of transition since the new decade began, but arguably no spot on this roster – quarterback aside – has changed as much as wide receiver. When Atlanta released its official roster before the 2020 season, wide receiver was a key strength. The position featured Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage as a three-headed monster with promising young players...

Drake London draft pick reactions from The Falcoholic

Drake London draft pick reactions from The Falcoholic

Photo by David Becker/ How is The Falcoholic staff feeling about the team’s newest receiver? The buzz around Drake London to the Falcons reached the point that it was impossible to ignore it, and however much we might have been against the idea of taking a wide receiver. When London landed in Atlanta, giving the team a top option after an offseason where Calvin Ridley was suspended and Russell Gage left for Tampa Bay, all that reporting was proven right and we had a lot to digest. After spending the rest of the evening thinking about the selection, naturally we had...

Atlanta Falcons should still trade Calvin Ridley next season

Before the Atlanta Falcons learned that Calvin Ridley would be suspended for a full season after gambling on the sport he plays there were rumblings the team could be looking to trade the receiver. The first priority should be the receiver’s well-being, Ridley stepped away from football last season to tend to his health.

The Falcons will answer several lingering questions with their 2022 draft class

The Falcons will answer several lingering questions with their 2022 draft class

Photo by Tim Warner/ Atlanta’s draft class will help to settle some of the biggest lingering questions about this football team’s present and future. The Falcons have taken us on a little bit of a roller coaster ride this offseason. We expected a relatively quiet offseason, given the team’s again-limited cap space, and instead we got Calvin Ridley’s suspension, the ill-fated Deshaun Watson pursuit, and a Matt Ryan trade. The free agency moves to this point have been what you’d expect, but not much else has been. Now we’re just days away from the 2022 NFL...
