    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. That results in an added emphasis on drafting well.This year is no different as 32 teams — yes, even the New England Patriots — have holes that must be filled. But for some, that need is more extensive than others. For those teams, April’s draft could either make them or completely break them.With that in mind, here’s a look at 10 teams with glaring draft needs that must be addressed before t…

    The Atlanta Falcons may want to give Tevin Coleman an extension, but that doesn’t mean he wants one

    Fact: Tevin Coleman likes when people whip, but he hates when they nae nae Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman is only under contract through the end of next season. When the Falcons gave Devonta Freeman a five year, $41.25 million contract extension in August, the writing on the wall got a little bolder. It’s hard to envision a scenario where both men are featured in the Falcons backfield after 2018. That said, general manager Thomas Dimitroff isn’t ruling out a scenario where Coleman, like Freeman, gets a long-term deal. But if we set aside the obvious cap implications and…

    Falcons coach Keith Armstrong having second interview with Arizona Cardinals today

    Atlanta may need a new special teams coordinator if Armstrong gets a head coaching position. Keith Armstrong has been coaching special teams for two decades, including for the Atlanta Falcons since 2008. He has an absurdly long resume, and has been respected across the league for years. However, he may be moving on to another spot this offseason.The #AZCardinals are hosting #Panthers DC Steve Wilks and #Falcons ST coach Keith Armstrong on their second head-coach interviews today, sources say. The search could continue into next week.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 19, 2018Arm…

    Vic Beasley will be a full-time defensive end in 2018

    Per Dan Quinn, the linebacker experiment is over. Generally speaking, I thought the coaching staff did a masterful job getting the most out of its defense in 2017. You can quibble with some usage patterns—I certainly would say the team needed to get Takk McKinley more involved earlier in the year—but this defense improved by leaps and bounds.One player who had a down year by 2016 standards was, perhaps inevitably, Vic Beasley. After leading the NFL in sacks with 15.5 a season ago, Beasley finished with just five in 2017. He was close on a handful of pressures and probably could hav…

    Thomas Dimitroff hints the Falcons could keep Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman

    Believe it when you see it, though. One of the many things that came out of yesterday’s end of season presser was the tidbit that Thomas Dimitroff believes the Falcons can keep Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman together. Whether they will do so, of course, is an entirely different question.The two backs shared the backfield again in 2017, with results that didn’t quite match 2016. Coleman put up 628 yards and five touchdowns on the ground and 299 yards and three touchdowns through the air, while Freeman rolled up 865 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground and 317 yards and one to…

    The Falcons 2018 offense could be a top 10 unit again

    Contrary to popular belief, Sark is not alone to blame. Falcons offensive coordinators are a veritable lightning rod. When the offense is successful, they’re praised and loved and offered head coaching positions. When the offense struggles, they are the Bride of Satan. Doubly so if you’re an offensive coordinator tasked with taking over one of the most successful offenses in NFL history.Enter Steve Sarkisian. Our newest Bride of the Devil. He was brought in with no experience calling an NFL offense and told to run the same playbook as the guy before him (who had done it for over a d…

    Football gods shine on Atlanta Falcons, Devonta Freeman avoids knee surgery

    Fact: Devonta Freeman invented chicken wings Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman had a rough year. It’s probably not the sort of year Freeman or the Falcons had in mind when he signed a five year, $41.25 million contract in August. But two concussions and a knee injury later, here we are. We learned after the divisional round loss that Freeman had been playing through a knee injury. We had some sense something wasn’t right in week 17 when Freeman hobbled off the field late in that game. Then again in the wild card round and divisional rounds, something was off. But ultimat…

    Falcons interviewing former Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell for QBs coach

    Former Panthers QBs coach Ken Dorsey is also lined up. The key factor the Falcons seem to be looking for in a quarterbacks coach is experience. After Bush Hamdan spent a single season in Atlanta fresh out of college—and Matt Ryan had a significantly worse season—Atlanta clearly wants to bring in a coach who knows the ropes and who may be able to help Steve Sarkisian out a bit in his second year as a coordinator. The list of candidates we’re seeing confirms that, and there’s one name in particular that stands out.That name would be Darrell Bevell, who was just recently fired as…
