Falcons GM suggests James Carpenter, Jamon Brown, and Matt Gono will be involved in LG competition

Falcons GM suggests James Carpenter, Jamon Brown, and Matt Gono will be involved in LG competition

Photo by Mark Brown/ This doesn’t mean the Falcons will stand pat, but it does mean we shouldn’t expect Brown or Carpenter to be cut. The left guard spot is the sole source of real intrigue along the offensive line, as the team’s other four starters are set barring a surprise Alex Mack cut in the name of cap space. That ensures we’ll be eating up any and all indications of who might be competing for the left guard job in training camp, and we just got an indication earlier than anticipated. In an interview with AtlantaFalcons.com writer Will McFadden, Thomas Dimtiroff suggested...

What was the single greatest season by a Falcons CB?

What was the single greatest season by a Falcons CB?

Photo by Bruce Bennett Studios via Studios/ There have been some truly tremendous ones in the team’s long history. Today, it’s time to talk about the best cornerback seasons in team history, and to vote. We’re getting close to the end of our all-time seasons campaign, and then we’ll vote on the best single season fo any player, regardless of position. The Falcons are still waiting for their next truly great cornerback to come along, as the latest season I saw fit to include here was Brent Grimes’ 2010. That’s not a knock on Desmond Trufant or Robert Alford, who both had...

Report: Falcons will pick up Matt Schaub’s contract option

Report: Falcons will pick up Matt Schaub’s contract option

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Schaub still could lose out on the battle to Danny Etling or Kurt Benkert, but he’ll at least be here to push for the job again. For what seems like the 10th consecutive season, the Falcons have a Matt Schaub decision looming. As has been the case for what seems like 10 consecutive seasons, it appears they’ll be bringing the wily veteran backup back. Schaub will keep one of the most entertaining and unusual careers in Falcons history going. He’s one of the few players who began his career and Atlanta and will likely finish it here, and he’s now...

The Falcons must franchise Austin Hooper by tomorrow, and there’s no indication they’ll do it

The Falcons must franchise Austin Hooper by tomorrow, and there’s no indication they’ll do it

Photo by Michael Reaves/ We’re drawing ever-closer to Hooper hitting the open market. Perhaps the most buzzed-about topic of the offseason for the Falcons, both here and out in the larger world of NFL analysis, is Austin Hooper. Throughout the season it seemed like a slam dunk that he’d be the nice man in line for a big contract extension, but since we’ve hit the offseason talk from both Hooper’s camp and the Falcons has cooled things down significantly. There’s another milestone looming tomorrow, when clubs have to designate franchise or transition players for 2020. The...

Throughout the season it seemed like a slam dunk that he’d be the nice man in line for a big contract extension, but since we’ve hit the offseason talk from both Hooper’s camp and the Falcons has cooled things down significantly.
