Falcons Lose Billy "Wingtips" Devaney

Adios, assistant general manager. You presided over the last draft, you helped swing a trade for John Abraham, and you mercifully managed to stay out of the spotlight as everyone else involved with the team dived into it in slow motion. It's too bad you had to go to the Rams, bro.

Again, though Devaney wasn't pushed out the door, this is a sign that things are changing around Flowery Branch. If they'd change the name of the place to something like Death Branchfortress it'd be more impressive, but I digress. Devaney is a fine personnel guy who saw the writing on the wall and bolted for a good deal with another team. It's a lot less than the Falcons throwing him out on his butt because he doesn't fit with Dimitroff.
