  • Blalock: Five Things To Know About My Teammates

    1 year, 3 months ago

    In two weeks of doing this feature, I think I’ve learned more about the personal lives of the Falcons than I have in my previous three years in my current job. Offensive linemen are always some of the most interesting people to talk to, especially left guard Justin Blalock. So, I pulled Blalock aside earlier [...]

  • Manley Working Out at Left Tackle

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Offensive lineman Phillipkeith Manley was a relative unknown last year when he came to the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo, but as last year’s camp wore on, it became obvious that Manley would be the kind of player the team would want to keep around. He ended up on the 53-man [...]

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Every day and in every position, there’s some kind of battle going on during Russell Athletic Training Camp. With a few exceptions, most of the 90 players currently on the roster have a test to face each time they step on the field for practice or a preseason game. Thomas DeCoud and William Moore are [...]

    The Falcons on Monday morning released their second unofficial depth chart of the preseason. If you were expecting many changes, you won’t find them here.

    The 2013 preseason kicks off Thursday night as the Bengals come to the Georgia Dome to face the Falcons on an nationally-televised stage, and while marquee players won’t necessarily be playing much — if at all — in the first exhibition game, there are still plenty of players to keep an eye on. We know [...]

  • Matthews Sees Cross-Training As Big Opportunity

    1 year, 3 months ago

    When drafted in the seventh round, players have no choice but to be flexible so it’s a good thing Cliff Matthews is the picture of defensive line versatility.

    1 year, 3 months ago

    When the Falcons released their first unofficial depth chart Monday night, there were several positions that looked interesting as battles continue to heat up. Perhaps one position to note was the spot behind linebacker Stephen Nicholas. The name among the second-stringers is Nick Clancy, that of a linebacker out of Boston College — and a [...]

  • Schraeder Looking to Follow Tuggle’s Footsteps

    1 year, 3 months ago

    It was 1987 when an unknown linebacker from Valdosta State stepped on the field with the Falcons without any idea of the impact he would have years later. Now in 2013, there’s a rookie who’s already taken a similar path, from Valdosta State to the Falcons as an undrafted rookie, yet his future is undetermined. [...]
