FF Locker Room:
NFL News: The Atlanta Falcons waived wide receiver Kerry Meier on Monday who played a total of 12 games for them, specializing on special teams. A fifth-round pick from 2010, he will be trying to brew up some interest around the league to extend his playing career. Players like this though usually last only a few seasons, so don’t be surprised if he calls it a career before too long.
Fantasy Ramifications: Meier holds no fantasy football value, dynasty or otherwise.

Trader Thomas. The Gambler. Monty Hall Jr.
Whatever you want to call him, Thomas Dimitroff clearly relishes his reputation on draft day.
The general manager of the Atlanta Falcons is always ready to make a deal.
This year is no different.
Dimitroff is positioned for another busy draft, holding the 30th overall pick and plenty of extra selections in the later rounds to restock...
1. Defensive End: Edwards and Abraham were the starters at this time last year, and both have been released since. Umenyiora was signed, but he's an average starter at this point in his career at best. They also have no one across from him. They will need to take a defensive end with one of their first two picks. They've also been rumored to be considering trading up for...
Defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux said Tuesday he'd like to see the Falcons make defense their top priority in this week's NFL draft.
Some important names were missing from the 2012 defense when Atlanta returned this week to begin its offseason program. Defensive end John Abraham and cornerback Dunta Robinson were released. Cornerbacks Brent Grimes and Chris Owens and...
ATLANTA Matt Ryans offseasons have mostly resembled an ocean of calmness in past years.
For the Falcons quarterback, who offers an air of unflappability, little appears to distract him from his stated goal of winning football games.
This offseason, a couple of factors some under his control, some not have derailed him a bit. Ryan being Ryan, they are mostly small ripples but...
Zoneblitz.com is going team by team reviewing 2012 and getting a sneak peak into 2013 by doing Q&A's with different team blogs around the internet. We had the opportunity to answer some Falcons questions for them.
Here is one of the questions from the Q&A:
Zoneblitz: What do you think of the release of Michael Turner and the signing of Steven...
One of the great things about Twitter is that you can quickly get a sample of what the fanbase is thinking. This evening I asked the Atlanta Falcons fanbase who they would target if the Falcons decided to trade up in the draft (as has been heavily rumored). I also asked them to put themselves in the position of armchair GM and asked what they would do in the first round. Here are...
The Atlanta Falcons had been criticized heading into 2012 for going out with a whimper two seasons in a row to the tune of blowout losses in the playoffs. The Falcons answered those doubters last season, winning one game before bowing out in a tightly contested NFC Championship game.
So where do the Falcons go from there? Matt Ryan’s continued development is key as is finding some...
The other day I looked at Tyler Eifert as a potential Falcon. In a sum-up, I think Atlanta has to select a pass catching tight end who can manage some semblance of blocking. Our team has moved to a pass heavy offense and an excellent blocker has limited use in our offense.
Maybe someone like this?
Tyler Eifert fits that bill but does not feel to be great value...
Every team in the NFL takes a different approach to the draft process. Some teams adhere to the so-called "best available player" strategy, or BAP. Others declare themselves to draft on the basis of needs, such as the Atlanta Falcons. Still others use other obscure ways of picking their players. The Raiders for instance used to seemingly draft on the basis of pure athleticism...
