AROUND THE WEB
ATLANTA For months, it seems, the Falcons have tip-toed around the issue of a contract extension for quarterback Matt Ryan.
Back in March, following the Falcons' big spending spree on Tony Gonzalez, William Moore, Sam Baker, Steven Jackson and Osi Umenyiora, there was a sense that Ryan was next.
Even before that, the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens awarded quarterback...
The Atlanta Falcons are reportedly talking to free agent defensive end Richard Seymour, according to Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com and John Manasso of FOXSportsSouth.com.
Seymour, advancing in age, but still has some left in the tank, would bring some depth to line. He has 57.5 career sacks and spent the last 4 seasons in Oakland.
The question is, how much can the Falcons afford...
Any day now, we will hear about Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan receiving a contract extension worth over $100 million, with probably about a third of that money being guaranteed.

If they...
The Atlanta Falcons and tight end Levine Toilolo have agreed to a four-year deal. Weighing in at a mammoth 6-8/260, the 2013 NFL draft pick will be under the tutelage of veteran Tony Gonzalez. Expect him to make more of an impact in the protection side of things with the increase in his offensive role coming in the later part of this year or more likely in 2014.

I hear this isn’t as uncommon as you might think. Apartment complexes sometime hire shady people and those shady people in turn do things like Corey Dajohn Moody.
According to policem courtesy of AJC.com Moody worked at the Preserve at Mill Creek apartment complex where Julio Jones and former Falcons Christopher Owens lived.
Moody stole two rent checks one for $1500 from Jones...
Julio Jones and Chris Owens are in the news. They didn't do anything on or off the field that warrants any negative attention.
A 29 year-old Norcross, GA man named Corey Dajohn Moody is a different case altogether.

How can you not like the Atlanta Falcons’ chances again in the NFC South? How can the Falcons not be worried about the fact they are on the cusp and continually fall short of getting back to the Super Bowl. How can the team that looks like it could be the “Greatest Show on Turf” in this day and age, misfire when it comes to the playoffs and now that it seems the Saints are...

With the two sides in a “good place,” Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank wants to extend quarterback Matt Ryan’s contract in the “not too distant future.” Only slightly lagging behind star passers Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, the 28-year-old Ryan will likely earn a deal worth $18-20 million annually. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, the 6-foot...

According to Fox Sports South, the Atlanta Falcons and free agent DT Richard Seymour are currently in contract talks.
Seymour, 33, has drawn almost no interest this offseason. The Falcons have limited cap space to work with, so he most likely have to agree to something close the veteran’s minimum in terms of salary for this to get done.
Atlanta could use some additional interior...
