    2 years, 4 months ago

    With the Falcons releasing their first unofficial depth chart of the 2012 season last week, it could be safe to assume that all the starting positions — namely those on the offensive line — were sealed up and accounted for. Not so fast. Head coach Mike Smith said after practice Sunday that all positions are [...]

    2 years, 4 months ago

    Running back Antone Smith laughs when he thinks back on all his punt and kick return experience. Probably because there isn’t much of it.

    You’ll read it nearly every day if you’re on Twitter: “Kevin Cone just made a great catch,” or “James Rodgers is really quick off the ball and runs nice routes.” It may lead some to believe that those abilities have created front-runners for the race at the No. 5 wide receiver position, but the truth [...]
