Falcons sign TE Daniel Helm to reserve/future contract

Falcons sign TE Daniel Helm to reserve/future contract

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ This team will never stop adding tight ends. Ever. Atlanta’s got a bit of a job ahead rebuilding their tight end group. Only Kyle Pitts is a proven, high-caliber starter, and he effectively plays wide receiver often. Parker Hesse and Brayden Lenius will compete to back him up, but clearly the team needs depth and upside with Lee Smith potentially retiring and Hayden Hurst likely headed elsewhere. I don’t know whether he’ll make the roster and prove to be an upgrade, but we now know Daniel Helm will be joining the competition. We...

Among the myriad of offensive issues the Atlanta Falcons faced in the 2021 season, there were two lone standouts. Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson both showed up every week giving the Atlanta Falcons reasons to not become completely discouraged with the Atlanta offense. Pitts now has the second-highest yardage total of all time for a […] Atlanta Falcons Kyle Pitts has plenty to work on after breakout season - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - Atlanta Falcons News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Falcons inactives: Kyle Pitts playing, Jalen Mayfield out against Saints

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ In the season finale, Pitts will chase history and the Falcons will have a new starting left guard for the first time all year. The Falcons have announced their inactives with the game a little over an hour away, and there’s some good news to come out of the announcement. Per the team, tight end Kyle Pitts will play against the Saints, giving the offense a puncher’s chance of overcoming a stout New Orleans defense. Pitts also gets his shot at history, as he’s chasing Mike Ditka’s all-time yardage record for a rookie tight end and...

What if the Falcons win/lose against the New Orleans Saints part 2

What if the Falcons win/lose against the New Orleans Saints part 2

Photo by Ken Murray/Icon Sportswire via There is still plenty left to play for, even if it means playing spoiler. The Atlanta Falcons were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention with their Week 17 defeat against the Bills in Buffalo. That was always going to be an incredibly difficult game for the Birds to win, but they held their own and even led at halftime. A Kyle Pitts hamstring injury right before the half and the Bills settling into their offense kept the Falcons from keeping their season alive, however. Sitting at 7-9, Atlanta moves into the NFL’s...

When the Falcons play the Saints tomorrow, they’ll first and foremost be looking to cap off the season with a win. Beyond that, they’ll have the opportunity to make league history (Kyle Pitts, specifically) and team history in a variety of ways. In addition to Kyle Pitts chasing Mike Ditka, as we’ll mention below, here are the team and individual franchise marks and milestones that this team either has already hit this season or can change on Sunday.

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Falcons rookie tight end Kyle Pitts is officially listed as questionable for Week 18, but he told The Athletic’s Josh Kendall that he “believes” he’ll play Sunday. His biggest priority isn’t the record, but to “beat the Saints”. The Atlanta Falcons narrowly missed the playoffs after falling to the Buffalo Bills in Week 17, but they’ve still got something to play for in Week 18. A matchup with our most hated rival, the New Orleans Saints, awaits on Sunday. Arthur Smith pulled off a significant upset over New Orleans earlier...

This week’s big Falcons question: Will Kyle Pitts play?

This week’s big Falcons question: Will Kyle Pitts play?

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports This one looms large for multiple reasons. This passing game is the Kyle Pitts show, both now and in the future. Regardless of what happens with Calvin Ridley this offseason, Pitts is the centerpiece of the offense, and aside from Ridley he’s the only compelling receiving threat under contract in 2022. The Falcons may choose to set their offense on fire and start over this offseason, but Pitts will be here, and should be even better next year. In light of all that, whether he suits up in the final game of the season when the playoff dream...
