The Falcons signed Dwight Freeney yesterday, but he won’t be in training camp today.

Another day of Falcons training camp is coming, and it comes with a fresh tinge of excitement thanks to the Dwight Freeney signing. The veteran pass rusher won’t even be in Atlanta until Thursday, officially, but he’s coming, and he’ll be useful.

It’s worth thinking about the camp battles that might be impacted by this move, and there’s no question Freeney is going to push a linebacker or a defensive end out the door who might have been able to stick around otherwise. Considering Freeney is one of the most accomplished pass rushers of the last decade and still appears to have something to offer, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but keep an eye out to see who falls behind in these competitions.

While you ponder that, keep up with today’s live updates from training camp with our built-in Twitter tracker below, and discuss early and often.
