Happy Wednesday, Falcoholics! We’re still approximately 6 months away from meaningful football, but that’s OK, because we’ve pantries full of brown liquor and goldfish to keep us company.
Our links taste like cheese curds. They are particularly tasty when deep fried.
It appears Alex Mack (and his contract) are going to be part of the Falcons’ plans in 2020. But what’s the Plan B if something happens to Mack? In short, there isn’t one. And that’s a reality the Falcons will need to address sooner rather than later.
If one of Todd Gurley’s former teammate’s opinion counts for anything, there’s reason to be excited about what he can realistically accomplish in Atlanta. There are certainly mixed opinions about Gurley, and in particular, the decision to pay him double the money the Falcons saved by cutting Devonta Freeman. But with any luck, he will prove to be a high risk, high reward signing by Thomas Dimitroff and company.
Remember LaRoy Reynolds? The veteran linebacker and special teams ace has two seasons with the Falcons under his belt. And today they made the decision to welcome him back for a third. Reynolds is solid depth, and his signing is the kind of move the Falcons need to make to round out their pre-draft roster.
It’s hard to believe, but the Falcons could wind up starting 11 first rounders on offense this fall. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. But I’ll tell you this: It’s a thing.
