    Desmond Trufant injury: Star cornerback won’t participate in OTAs

    The Falcons are playing it cautiously with their best cornerback. The major injury to Desmond Trufant didn’t cost the Falcons a shot at the Super Bowl, but it’s difficult not to wonder how much better the defense would’ve been with him available, particularly in the biggest game imaginable. They’re not taking any chances with his recovery as they try to return to the Super Bowl in 2017. Falcons to hold cornerback Trufant out of OTAs https://t.co/e7oH0L7END— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) March 29, 2017This is being framed as a precaution, and there’s no reason to belie…

  • Vote for the greatest Falcons draft pick of all-time

    Vote for the greatest Falcons draft pick of all-time

    Who will triumph? As promised, we’re going to vote on the greatest Falcons draft pick of all-time. WHO WILL TRIUMPH!? Probably Matt Ryan. One quick note: Jessie Tuggle was nominated numerous times, but is very obviously not a draft pick (he was a UDFA). I’m turning his spot over to Jonathan Babineaux, who also drew multiple nominations as a former second-rounder and distinguished, long-time presence on the interior of this defensive line. I’m going to leave it up to the individual voter whether you want to count Brett Favre in particular and Deion Sanders to a lesser extent as b…

  • Falcons just waiting for Chris Chester to retire, says Thomas Dimitroff

    Falcons just waiting for Chris Chester to retire, says Thomas Dimitroff

    Expect the Falcons to have a new right guard this season. Chris Chester was part of one of the best offensive lines in football last season, but he’s 34 years old. His career has to be winding down, and according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff, the team expects him to retire in the near future. During an appearance on SiriusXM Radio with Vic Carucci and Alex Marvez on Tuesday, Dimitroff said it’s time for Chester to hang up his cleats. “If I were betting on it, I’d say it’s time for him to make his move to the next part of his life,” Dimitroff said. “He was a really…

    New Atlanta Falcons stadium’s roof has some issues, opening may be delayed

    The new $1.5 billion stadium is reportedly having some issues and may not open on time. The new Atlanta Falcons stadium was nearly guaranteed to be complete in time. Construction is so close to complete. Victory was in hand. But they got cute with the revolutionary roof, and have left the door open for the stadium to not finish in time. The stadium may lose its opening date.Why does this feel so oddly familiar? 11 Alive News has luckily grabbed subscriber content from the Business Chronicle, with a hat tip to Dirty South Soccer.Metal panels for the roof are supposed to be able to open…

  • Malcolm Butler to the Saints is the last major piece to fall in the NFC South

    Malcolm Butler to the Saints is the last major piece to fall in the NFC South

    The Saints have a chance to upgrade their secondary, perhaps massively, but it will come at a cost. The Falcons, Buccaneers, and Panthers are probably going to be largely content to improve via the draft the rest of the way, with the Bucs probably adding one or two recognizable names in free agency with all the cash they have lying around. That means that we basically know what these teams are, roster-wise, once the 2017 NFL Draft has come and gone.The Saints, though? The Saints are a different story, because they have one major, trajectory-altering item to resolve. That would be the p…

    Thomas Dimitroff: Hoping to ink Desmond Trufant, Devonta Freeman contracts by training camp

    Fact: Thomas Dimitroff owns 43 pairs of bike shorts Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff isn’t the novice he once was. He’s been there, he’s done that, he’s burned through truckloads of hair product. So even when faced with a substantial challenge, Dimitroff isn’t backing down. Successfully re-signing both Desmond Trufant and Devonta Freeman is one such challenge. Dimitroff sat down with Alex Marvez and Vic Carucci on SiriusXM NFL Radio today and he had some interesting things to say about those contract negotiations. (Spoiler alert: you’re going to like his con…

    Thomas Dimitroff suddenly strong supporter of new overtime rules

    The Atlanta Falcons general manager has curiously become a big supporter of both teams getting a chance in overtime. I can’t remember Thomas Dimitroff being a big supporter of overtime reform in past years, but he’s talking about it now. I wonder what’s changed since then. Dimitroff talked about it with Mike Florio, who apparently does something called PFT Live.Dimitroff said on PFT Live that he’d like to see the NFL explore an overtime format that guarantees each team a possession, as opposed to the current format, which allows a team to win the coin toss, receive the opening k…
