Falcons safeties Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal appear ready to play against Jets

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Oh, and Devonta Freeman too. We talked about it on the latest Falcoholic podcast: would guys like Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen actually play against the Jets in the third preseason game for the Falcons? Well, it certainly looks like that could be the case, as both starting safeties are dressed and appear poised to get some snaps together for the first time since early in the 2018 season. If this doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know what will. #InBrotherhood pic.twitter.com/05hG0erTV5— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) August 15, 2019 It’s an...

Ricardo Allen wants to be an OC after his NFL days are done

Ricardo Allen wants to be an OC after his NFL days are done

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports That’s not a typo. He wants to be an offensive coordinator, and he’s smart and determined enough to be an exceptional coach someday. Ricardo Allen didn’t just sit around while he recovered from the torn Achilles he suffered last season. He used his recovery time as an opportunity to learn more about this game that he loves — and not just his own side of the ball. “Last year when I was sitting down, I really took a deep study on the offense to try to figure out really what they’re doing,” Allen told reporters during training camp. “I always...

Dan Quinn says safety Ricardo Allen ‘is definitely full speed’ at training camp

Photo by Joe Robbins/ After a terrible Achille’s tear in September, the team’s free safety and defensive leader is healthy. The Atlanta Falcons are getting back to tackling and one notable player getting in on tackles is Ricardo Allen. Allen has come a long way from a very public firing on Hard Knocks back in 2014. Since then, he became one of the league’s best young safeties and has excelled with the Falcons both on and off the field. His September Achille’s tear was a huge blow to the defense. Also concerning was his rehab: Achille’s injuries can end careers, and typically...

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports It’s a great sign of how his recovery is progressing. Falcons training camp is into full swing and it looks like the team already has some good news.

Falcons training camp battles: The reserve safety scuffle

Falcons training camp battles: The reserve safety scuffle

Photo by Joe Robbins/ You’ve got several players contending for a couple of spots behind recuperating starters Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal. The Falcons didn’t take their issues at safety last year lightly. They had added Jordan Richards for his special teams acumen and had Damontae Kazee, which seemed like plenty until the Falcons improbably lost both their starters. Kazee largely thrived but Richards struggled to the point where Sharrod Neasman had to return and ride to the rescue, and heading into this year the Falcons had jettisoned Richards and elected to move Kazee to...
