  • Pires: As a Leader and LB, Spoon Really ‘Gets It’

    2 years, 7 months ago

    Linebackers coach Glenn Pires has already seen a lot of positive leadership from third-year linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, and that, combined with his speed, explosiveness and ability to pick things up right away make him one player to keep an eye on heading into the 2012 season. Jay Adams: Let’s start out with Sean Weatherspoon. He’s [...]

    2 years, 8 months ago

    On Monday, NFL.com’s Gil Brandt listed his 10 unsung special teamers around the league, breaking them down into three categories: four-core (players who make an impact on kickoff, kick return, punt and punt return), long snappers and kick blockers.

    2 years, 8 months ago

    If there’s one area that has stolen the show during the offseason, it’s the defensive back positions. From Brent Grimes’ franchise tag to trading for Asante Samuel, the secondary has been addressed, from a personnel standpoint, more than any other area on the Falcons’ roster this offseason.

    The way Falcons tight end Michael Palmer talks about his recent “summer vacation” story, it’s quite apparent that it affected him on a very deep level.
