Five last minute trades the Atlanta Falcons should pursue

When looking at the Falcons’ 2014 roster, there are a few glaring holes that the team wasn’t able to fill during the offseason. Atlanta never acquired a true edge rusher or a pass-catching tight end, among other things. The Falcons are no strangers to completing offseason trades to bolster their roster; Tony Gonzalez, Asante Samuel, and Dominique Foxworth were all acquired via...

Camp Preview: Cornerbacks finally a strength for the Atlanta Falcons?

View poll on FanMob The Falcons begin the 2014 campaign with a young, potentially-great crop of cornerbacks. Impressive rookie seasons by Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford have set expectations high, while the group as a whole looks to become a shutdown unit the team can lean on.

Falcons bringing rookie Hageman along slowly

By that, the defensive lineman, the Falcons' second-round pick, meant that it's doable but that it will nonetheless require some time. "It's football," Hageman said of coordinator Mike Nolan's fairly complex defense...

Continuing with the cornerback theme— FILM STUDY is the newest emphasis of the Chip Kelly culture— and it is no longer considered optional. Even cornerbacks are now expected to log as much time in the film room as in the weight room. What’s happening is an audio-visual revolution in the media side of advance scouting in not just the Eagles organization, but across the league...

How can the Falcons bounce back this season?

It’s hard to tell exactly how far the Falcons will rebound next season. Free Agency has been good to the Falcons, shoring up the depth and adding beef to the interior of both lines. But the draft is a month away, and having the 6th pick all but guarantees Thomas Dimitroff will do big things to bring in top tier players. So until the draft we won’t know the full picture.
