    2 years, 6 months ago

    By the time the Falcons added relative unknown Tim Toone to the roster, the team had already been through OTAs, a minicamp and a few practices of training camp. Looking like just another name to pad the numbers, Toone fell into line with the wide receivers and did his best to learn the offense as [...]

    Veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez has been around long enough to know that the further downfield a wide receiver is targeted by his quarterback downfield, the better things are for him underneath matched up against linebackers.

    There were several moments during Friday night’s preseason game against Miami that would have had fans jumping out of their seats during the regular season.

    Get used to watching Michael Turner doing his best Roddy White impression.

    2 years, 6 months ago

    The news that backup tackle Will Svitek would be out for the season that came earlier this week was tough to take for a lot of reasons.
