Get excited about Damontae Kazee, nickel cornerback

Get excited about Damontae Kazee, nickel cornerback

Kazee’s future is incredibly bright. I’ve resisted getting too hyped up about the Kazee move to cornerback until we saw it on the field, because there was always time for the Falcons to change their minds and slot him at safety. That wouldn’t be a bad move for the team, given that Kazee is coming off a stellar season at the position, but it may also not be maximizing his talents. Now that Kazee is on the field at OTAs and practicing at cornerback, it’s time to get excited. Kazee was widely considered a cornerback coming out of college and had repeatedly shown a knack for...

Julio Jones may need to take heat of holdout to get Falcons deal he wants

Falcons star Julio Jones didn’t show up for voluntary organized team activities this week. I don’t blame him. Look at the players who suffered serious injuries during the NFL’s silly spring, including teammate Steven Means.

The Falcons could be sitting on a lot more cap space after June 1

The Falcons could be sitting on a lot more cap space after June 1

That money could go to extensions or new signings. This story has been updated to reflect the uncertainty around Fusco being a post-June 1 cut. Based on our best available information at this time, it appears that only the savings from cutting Schraeder will actually impact the team’s cap after June 1. The Falcons went after their offensive line with pruning shears and a big bag of fertilizer this offseason, choosing to get rid of longtime tackle Ryan Schraeder and 2018’s big signing Brandon Fusco to make room for several new players, with both now looking for new opportunities with...

Falcons’ Durrant Miles is ready to take his inspiring journey and mentality to the NFL

Falcons’ Durrant Miles is ready to take his inspiring journey and mentality to the NFL

After making a huge impact in Bolivia and Boise, the relentless edge rusher is prepared to do the same in Atlanta. There is usually something inspiring about an undrafted free agent signing with a team. Although the player wasn’t selected in seven rounds of the draft, a team decided he was good enough to warrant an opportunity to compete for a roster spot. The Falcons signed Durrant Miles last month to help bolster the defensive line. While some remember him making plays for Boise State, Miles was making a difference long before playing college football. After graduating high school,...

The Falcons could be sitting on $10 million in cap space after June 1

That money could go to extensions or new signings. The Falcons went after their offensive line with pruning shears and a big bag of fertilizer this offseason, choosing to get rid of longtime tackle Ryan Schraeder and 2018’s big signing Brandon Fusco to make room for several new players, with both now looking for new opportunities with new teams. They did that for several reasons, but the biggest one was probably freeing up the cash to make more moves down the line. If D. Orlando Ledbetter’s mention below is accurate—and we’ve reached out to the team to try to clarify—then the...
