Julio Jones, Falcons make progress in discussions about an extension

Julio Jones, Falcons make progress in discussions about an extension

There’s been a lot of talk about Julio Jones and his contract situation with the Atlanta Falcons. Last training camp, the Falcons star receiver staged a brief holdout over his deal. Jones signed a contract a few years ago that has him woefully underpaid considering what other top wideouts are getting now, but the Falcons […] The post Julio Jones, Falcons make progress in discussions about an extension appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Falcons wide receiver could be an Arizona Cardinals trade target

Due to some cap space restraints, the Atlanta Falcons might have to part ways with one of their most consistent players; Mohamed Sanu. If they do, expect the Arizona Cardinals to be a partner in trade talks. The Atlanta Falcons have been busy in the off-season trimming the roster of players with a high cap […] Falcons wide receiver could be an Arizona Cardinals trade target - Raising Zona - Raising Zona - An Arizona Cardinals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

NFL free agency: NFC South signings are a decidedly mixed bag

NFL free agency: NFC South signings are a decidedly mixed bag

Fact: Will Lutz smells like beef and cheese NFL free agency kicked off last week, and it’s been a hectic seven days. This is always an interesting time of year. You see which positions teams are emphasizing ahead of the draft. You sit back, hoping division rivals make bad decisions and overpay as much as possible. You lament your favorite team’s inactivity. It’s like Christmas, without all the yelling and hard alcohol. By now you know all about the subdued approach the Falcons took in free agency. As our own Kevin Knight so eloquently described in this must-read piece, Thomas...

Falcons prospect scouting report: DL Rashan Gary, Michigan

Falcons prospect scouting report: DL Rashan Gary, Michigan

The Atlanta Falcons have several avenues to attack the defensive line. Here is one option they may explore. The draft approach for the Atlanta Falcons is showing signs of clarity after the opening of free agency. Here is one of the better prospect in the entire draft that can help improve their defensive line. Thanks to a fairly busy initial period of 2019 free agency in which they addressed the offensive side of the ball, it became quite lucid that the Falcons will focus on the defense in this year’s draft. I think at this point, we can expect the Falcons to some early additions on...

Thomas Dimitroff failed, again, letting Bruce Irvin walk

Thomas Dimitroff failed miserably by not making an offer to Bruce Irvin and allowing him to join the Carolina Panthers without a fight. Thomas Dimitroff did not even attempt to make an offer to Bruce Irvin before he signed with division rival Carolina on Tuesday; this is unacceptable. Terms for the deal had not been disclosed […] Thomas Dimitroff failed, again, letting Bruce Irvin walk - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - An Atlanta Falcons Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

What do the Falcons free agent signings tell us about their 2019 plans?

What do the Falcons free agent signings tell us about their 2019 plans?

The Falcons dedicated nearly all of their free agent resources to offensive players in 2019. What do these signings tell us about Atlanta’s plans for the 2019 NFL Draft and beyond? The Falcons have been busy early in free agency, adding four outside players and bringing back several contributors from 2018. Outside of franchise tagging DT Grady Jarrett and extending the contracts of EDGE Steven Means and LB Bruce Carter—two depth players who will be competing for roster spots in 2019—Atlanta made absolutely no outside moves to shore up the defense. That fact brings up an interesting...

Mel Kiper is high on the Falcons 2018 draft class a year later

Mel Kiper is high on the Falcons 2018 draft class a year later

Kiper likes what the Falcons did a year ago, but not the rest of the NFC South. Mel Kiper isn’t the most accurate draft expert out there, but he is the highest-paid, and he does have the best hair. That makes his re-evaluation of the Falcons’ 2018 draft class worth another glance. Predictably, Kiper is higher on the class now than he was in 2018. The Falcons were coming off a mixed 2017 draft class and hit some unexpected roster spots with their 2018 class, snagging WR Calvin Ridley in the first round and using only one selection (DT Deadrin Senat in the third round) in the trenches....

Atlanta Falcons: Best WR Corp in the NFL

 In a passing league, no team has a better WR corp than the Atlanta Falcons. The trio of Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley had a combined 3,336 yards receiving and 22 TD’s in 2018. I always laugh when people talk about bruising runningbacks or an offensive lineman not being worth a damn because […] Atlanta Falcons: Best WR Corp in the NFL - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - An Atlanta Falcons Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Falcons want to know how fans feel about bringing back the Dirty Bird

Falcons want to know how fans feel about bringing back the Dirty Bird

Our editorial perspective is hell yes. What’s the most pressing issue facing the Falcons this offseason? Is it the limited amount of available cap the team has left to make moves? Is it the looming contract issues for Julio Jones, Grady Jarrett, and others? Or maybe ... just maybe ... could it be the return of the Dirty Bird? My esteemed colleague, pal, and fellow Falcons fan Steven Godfrey shared excerpts from a survey the team sent out over the weekend. An emphasis on the Dirty Bird stood out. The Falcons have been rolling with this Rise Up slogan for years now. Fans...
