Offseason Mailbag: Justin Fields & other QB options, priority free agent positions

Photo by Justin Casterline/ It’s been a news-heavy week for the Atlanta Falcons, and we’ve got a few answers for your biggest questions It’s been a news-heavy week for the Atlanta Falcons. Head coach Raheem Morris and General Manager Terry Fontenot spoke from the podium at the NFL Combine, and they made clear what we all know—quarterback is at the top of the offseason priority list. But while the organization is searching for the long-term answer at the game’s most important position, the business of building a roster continues. On that front, Atlanta made an...

Falcons land at 25th on NFLPA 2024 Report Card

David J. Griffin/Icon Sportswire via The red helmets, though, get an A++. The second annual NFLPA Club Report Cards have been released. The idea of the club report cards was brought up by players, so that they may essentially use it as a sort of “free agency guide,” as the report cards release shortly before free agency starts. The goal is to give players a better read of the organization they’re considering joining. The NFLPA sends out surveys to players who respond with feedback about their respective organizations. In 2024, 1,706 active NFL players completed...

Falcons cut TE Jonnu Smith

Photo by Justin Casterline/ Smith enjoyed a productive year with Arthur Smith’s Falcons, but a change in the coaching staff leads to his exit. The Atlanta Falcons have cap space, but always figured to open up more of it ahead of free agency as they look to re-tool their roster under a new head coach. The first such move came on Tuesday, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Falcons have released tight end Jonnu Smith. That marks the end of a brief but productive Falcons tenure for the 28-year-old Smith, who was traded to Atlanta from the New England Patriots...

Quarterback continues to hold outsized importance for Falcons at Combine

Quarterback continues to hold outsized importance for Falcons at Combine

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Raheem Morris and Terry Fontenot are clear that the position is at the top of any list of needs. The Atlanta Falcons were undone in 2022 and 2023 by multiple factors, but lackluster quarterback play was certainly among the top issues this team faced over the past two seasons. Trying to build a strong supporting cast and counting on that and good coaching to pull up the level of play from veteran free agents and a third round draft pick simply failed, and Marcus Mariota, Desmond Ridder, and Taylor Heinicke played poorly enough over the past two...

2023 Falcons roster review: Strong start, disappointing finish creates cornerback dilemma

2023 Falcons roster review: Strong start, disappointing finish creates cornerback dilemma

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ What was becoming one of the strongest positions on the roster turned into one with more long-term questions than answers by the end of the season. The Atlanta Falcons’ cornerback group had been lacking in recent years, at least behind A.J. Terrell’s excellence. The depth chart comprised declining veterans and young players who proved to be overmatched when called upon. With more cap space and Ryan Nielsen’s influence, they were more proactive in addressing the position with a mixture of fascinating young talent. Acquiring Jeff Okudah and...

The Atlanta Falcons have future franchise icons on their roster right now, even if we’re not exactly sure who out of the group of Bijan Robinson, Drake London, A.J. Terrell, Kyle Pitts, and Chris Lindstrom will be the ones we remember most fondly down the line. They only have a handful of established franchise icons still on the roster, however, between Younghoe Koo, Jake Matthews, and Grady Jarrett. Koo will need a couple more years to meaningfully challenge the very top of the...

Falcons re-sign long snapper Liam McCullough

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via Atlanta brings back the reliable McCullough for a third season. Stability is a good thing at long snapper, because if you’re bringing back a player year after year at the most niche position in the NFL, he’s probably doing a good job. That’s the case for Liam McCullough, a core piece of the special teams puzzle for the Atlanta Falcons. That’s why it’s not at all surprising to see the team bring McCullough back, especially because he was an exclusive-rights free agent, which kept him from negotiating with any other...
