QB Coach: OTAs Good to Ryan, Jones

After the Falcons’ session of OTAs last week, wide receiver Julio Jones made a big deal out of the difference he’s experienced this year with an offseason program as opposed to last year, when he was at the mercy of the lockout that all but wiped away offseason training programs for teams.

Jones marveled at how much more comfortable he’s been able to get with quarterback Matt Ryan during OTAs, and it’s showing on the field during practice sessions

On Wednesday, quarterbacks coach Glenn Thomas said he’s noticed the same thing, which bodes well for duo heading into their second season together.

“I think that’s huge,” Thomas said. “I think there’s a lot of noise out there (in the media) that doesn’t really mean anything, but something like that, an aspect like that I think is critical — especially with a rookie coming in for his first year in the league with a new quarterback, all of those unknowns, a new system, steps, timing, all that. It’s been huge for him, just within the last two or three weeks that we’ve been working together.”
