A Look Inside the Falcons Offensive Line

Losing left tackle Sam Baker for the season wasn't ideal. Members of the offensive line spoke to the media yesterday about adapting to Baker's absence and moving forward as a unit. Jake Matthews, Justin Blalock, and Lamar Holmes all spoke to the media following yesterday's final training camp practice on the current status of the offensive line following the season-ending injury suffered by starting left tackle Sam Baker in preseason action against the Texans last weekend. Holmes, who took snaps at right tackle and whose experience as a starter last season makes him a logical first option...

Sam Baker May Be Gone For The Season. What Now?

What the Falcons can and perhaps should do after Sam Baker was lost to a major injury. The Sam Baker story appears likely to be over in Atlanta, as news trickles out that he may be out for the 2014 season. This is the last year where Baker's cap hit will be truly prohibitive, and after he's muddled through parts of seven up-and-down, injury-marred years in Atlanta, it seems likely Atlanta will simply move on.

The Falcons don't have many options in this scenario. Rookie Jake Matthews...
