The Falcons are keeping the players they need to keep

Photo by Steve Dykes/ You live and die by your stars, and the Falcons aren’t letting them walk. This piece started off as a “what a new Deion Jones contract means for the Falcons” article, but then I realized it was too blindingly obvious to bother with.

The fact that they managed to get him locked down for less than a team paid C.J. Mosley is frankly astonishing. So let’s take another obvious but important tack instead: The Falcons are doing the right thing...

Burning 2019 Falcons questions: Where will the defensive improvements come from?

Perhaps the photo will be a hint. As we continue to think about the 2019 Atlanta Falcons and what’s coming down the pike, let’s focus in on the defense overall and what’s possible going ahead.
