Unfortunately, PSLs (personal seat licenses) are becoming a common barrier for fans hoping to acquire season tickets in these new flashy arenas. That has been the case in Atlanta ever since Mercedes-Benz Stadium was built.
There are too many articles about who the media thinks the Falcons should sign. In reality, this offseason will be a frugal one. Terry Fontneont has already made it apparent that Atlanta will have to hit on the later draft picks and lower-costing free agents if they want to compete immediately.
We’re back to some draft talk! With the 2020 season being as odd as it was, it’s harder than ever to evaluate where some of these players will go in April, but here are the names I like to round out Day 2.

It’s that dead time of the year for the NFL, especially with no combine due to the pandemic. Free-agency begins in less than a month, which will surely be slow because of the loss of revenue forcing teams to be more frugal than usual.
A Pro Football Focus study found plenty to like in the early rounds for Atlanta, The Falcons have turned the keys over to an entirely new front office, one with a first-time general manager but a ton of experienced evaluators, including Terry Fontenot himself.
With the NFL draft and free agency looming, the Falcons roster will look completely different in 2021 than it did last year due to the league’s loss of revenue and Terry Fontenot’s first offseason as the team’s general manager.
I’m gonna line up each of my previous archived mock drafts from SportsTalkATL and other sites to see how bad my takes were over previous years. Some of these mocks have trades and different editions; therefore, the picks may look a little off.
No great surprises here, but Falcons vs. Jaguars seems like a real possibility. The NFL has been hellbent on additional games for many, many years. It’s just that they couldn’t quite get the players to agree to them until now, and thus you should not be surprised to learn a 17 game schedule is moving ahead quickly.
With Matt Schaub retiring this offseason and Kurt Benkert being waived, the future behind Matt Ryan is cloudier than ever in Atlanta. The Falcons hold the fourth pick in the draft, but this team has many other needs outside of backup quarterback.
If you’ve read any of my draft stuff, I’m a big fan of trading down. In my last first-round NFL mock draft, I have Atlanta trading down for Rashawn Slater – one of the best players in the entire draft to me.
