Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Veteran defensive end heads to the state of Ohio. While the apex of free agency has leveled down a bit, this is still a critical time of the offseason as teams look to round out depth with key veterans signings. On Tuesday, the Atlanta Falcons saw another piece of the defense from last season depart as nine-year veteran Adrian Clayborn signed a two-year deal to join the Cleveland Browns and its young defensive core. Clayborn is fresh off a four-sack season in 2019 with the Falcons to go along with 18 total tackles and seven quarterback hits. It was...

The Olympics have been postponed but international games have not changed. The Falcons were planned to fly to London to battle the Denver Broncos and pack into a 100,000+ person stadium.

Falcons 2020 NFL Draft scouting report: CB Bryce Hall, Virginia

Photo by Mark Brown/ The Falcons have drafted at least one defensive back in each of the last eight drafts, dating back to 2012. Credit should be given to University of Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall. Since he took over the ACC program in 2016, there has been apparent improvement for Virgina. The Cavaliers were a 2 team when Mendenhall took over in 2016 but this past season, they pulled down 9 wins and an Orange Bowl berth. During that time, player development has also been impressive, and especially on the defensive side of the ball, largely because of Mendenhall’s defensive...

Falcons 2020 NFL Draft scouting report: S Jeremy Chinn

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports Taking a look at one of the top safeties in the draft. There are quite a few holes on this Falcons defense, but there’s one position group that isn’t being discussed as much despite a real need. That position group is the safety group. As I have stated before, the safety group is potentially a year away from needing new starters. Given that Keanu Neal’s future is uncertain due to his injury history and Ricardo Allen’s contract is up after 2021, it’s appropriate to start looking for replacements. Damontae Kazee is also a free agent, so let’s...

Hayden Hurst hopes to become the latest TE to have success in Dirk Koetter’s offense

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Hurst has a real shot to follow in the footsteps of Cameron Brate and Austin Hooper. Hayden Hurst is fully aware he’s stepping into a huge opportunity in Atlanta. In Baltimore, the former first round pick was buried on the depth chart behind breakout star Mark Andrews and uber-blocker Nick Boyle. With the Falcons, he’s likely the unquestioned starter, with the 90+ targets Austin Hooper saw last year heading his way. That’s probably why he sounds pretty excited in a new interview with The Athletic’s Jason Butt. In it, Hurst says he always plays at 100 miles...
