    Every team in the NFL has a need, perhaps even more than one. That’s the nature of the free agency age as it’s much harder for teams to keep their talent for the duration of player’s career.

    • Austin Hooper earns love from Pro Football Focus as one of the best tight ends under 25

      Austin Hooper earns love from Pro Football Focus as one of the best tight ends under 25

      We think he’s plenty deserving. The Falcons have been getting a lot more love than usual this offseason, even if they’re sometimes snubbed from lists like biggest steal in the draft and so forth. That continues today, with Pro Football Focus selecting Austin Hooper as an honorable mention for the best tight end under 25.Hooper had a successful rookie season, reeling in 19 catches for 271 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season, and he made his presence felt in the postseason, as well.

    • Former Falcons coach Bryan Cox has a guess as to why he was fired

      Former Falcons coach Bryan Cox has a guess as to why he was fired

      Hint: Combine. The news of Bryan Cox’s firing was surprising in the extreme, given its timing. It also flew under the radar a bit, considering that the Falcons parted ways with defensive coordinator Richard Smith the same day, and we were also sort of still in a stage of deep mourning over the Super Bowl. You know, that stuff. It also wasn’t immediately clear why he was fired. The impetus behind Smith was that Dan Quinn had begun calling plays and the team clearly wanted to put Marquand Manuel into the defensive coordinator role, least in hindsight. Cox, meanwhile, had been beat up…
