A Closer Look at Zeke Motta

Yesterday we took a closer look at Falcons fourth round pick Malliciah Goodman. Today we dive a little bit deeper in the draft and venture further from the line of scrimmage.

Falcons' Preseason Stock Exchange (Week 4)

Looking at which players potentially stepped up in last night’s loss to Jacksonville to make one final push for a roster/practice squad position. As well as those players that may have not. Stock Up Kevin Cone – Cone has had a few too many drops this preseason, but he made up for it with a nice catch and run for the team’s lone passing touchdown against Jacksonville....
