DOMINIQUE FRANKS NEWS

Ravens head into 5-week break with two new cornerbacks…

Dominique Franks (free agent from Atlanta) is signed to the Ravens roster along with Aaron Ross (formerly of the Giants and Jags) to compete for that 3rd corner position in the Ravens secondary.

Observations from the Falcons final Pre-Season Game

On the offensive side of the ball I was impressed with Dominique Davis’ ability to elude and escape defenders in the pocket. His decision making has continued to improve from week to week, despite the fact he did throw an INT in this game. It’s important to note that Davis had a lot of plays where he pressured and had a defender bearing down on him and hung in the pocket to make...

Week 5 preview: how the Falcons will beat the Redskins

The biggest key for the Falcons this week will not be getting off to the slow start they did a week ago. They want to take advantage of their passing attack going against the weak Redskin secondary.
