It’s Monday I think, which means you get to start your week with Falcoholinks. Read on for all of the latest updates on the Atlanta Falcons.
Todd Gurley’s arrival
The Falcons are replacing Devonta Freeman with Todd Gurley, a move that comes with immediate upside but obvious risk. The biggest area of concern is Gurley’s knee, which relegated him to a snap count last year with the Rams. The Athletic’s Jay Glazer provided some clarity on Gurley’s knee situation, and what we can expect with his Atlanta arrival.
Health questions aside, Todd Gurley is excited to be heading to the Falcons, and he’s also going to be changing his jersey number.
Defensive free agents
With pass rushers in particular, the Falcons don’t have a stellar track record for free agent acquisitions of late.
The Falcons dipped into the XFL for some linebacker depth by signing Edmond Robinson, and have also added to their offense with the additions of lineman Justin McCray and wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.
Scouting C.J. Henderson
Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson should be available when the Falcons pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. With the moves they’ve made so far in free agency, the corner spot is a glaring area of need.
Our Everett Glaze took a look at Henderson and what he can bring to the table at the NFL level.
