Matt Ryan Says He’s “Not Really Too Worried” About New Contract

You would think Atlanta Falcons stud quarterback Matt Ryan would feel some type of way about all these $100 million contracts getting passed out and none of them are for him.

Personal Seat Licenses Are Coming to Atlanta

Arthur Blank's new Atlanta Falcons stadium is a go. Blank tells the AJC "The fun starts now, now that we got past the political process." But will the fun start for the fans once the new stadium is built? Sure it will be nice and shiny but how much is it going to cost the fans?

NFL Draft 2013: Perfect For The Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons Draft Outlook: OL

The Falcons offensive line is a bit of a question mark. Especially with the release of RT Tyson Clabo. Presumably Lamar Holmes will play right tackle next year but that leaves the Falcons with a hole at swing/back up left tackle. A hole I assume they will fill in the fourth or fifth round of the draft.  Another position of interest is the guard position. Justin Blalock is...
