Falcons to watch: What kind of 2019 role can John Cominsky earn?

Falcons to watch: What kind of 2019 role can John Cominsky earn?

The rookie defensive end has all the physical ability in the world. Can he put it together in Atlanta? John Cominsky is not expected to be an impact player in 2019. It’s always a good idea to expect that an athletic yet relatively raw defensive lineman will not play a major role in his first year, and anything Cominsky can provide this year will be a bonus. That said, things have be happening that could open the door for some kind of opportunity. Cominsky is expected to play quite a bit of defensive end his first year and Steven Means just got hurt, which means the snaps should at least...

Former Eagles pass rusher won’t be able to play against his old team this season

This is a bummer. Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Steven Means — now with the Atlanta Falcons — suffered an ACL injury and will miss the entire 2019 NFL season. The team confirmed as much in an official announcement. This is a bummer. Means is a hard-working guy who helped the Eagles a lot behind the scenes en route to their Super Bowl win. Means took it upon himself to study tape of upcoming opponent pass rushers and replicate their moves during practice in order to prepare the Eagles’ offensive line for game day.
