We're going to adopt a very loose format to these updates, given the likelihood that some days will go by where the most exciting news is that Mike Smith grimaced, leaned forward and cursed someone out. I'll collect three or four of the big updates for the day and we'll

Here's what we learned from Saturday's training camp, based on observers' reports. If you have your own, please add them to the comments and I'll move them up to the main post.

  • Garrett Reynolds and Mike Johnson are competing for Harvey Dahl's vacated right guard spot. Reynolds is two inches taller and two pounds lighter than Johnson. My money's on MJ. 
  • Ray Edwards believes he might just be the missing piece. I'm hoping he will be too, but we won't get to see him practice until today thanks to the vagaries of the NFL signing system. 
  • William Moore has high hopes for himself. After the rookie season he put together, my hopes are somewhere in the realm of stratospheric.
  • Matt Ryan vaporizes Tokyo. Okay, that's not true. But would it surprise you?

More to come as the day goes on, I'm sure. In the meantime, talk free agency, talk training camp and talk your own expectations for our 2011 Atlanta Falcons.
