Fact: Calvin Ridley has never eaten a blueberry

Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! Come in. Stay a while.

Our links are mostly non-toxic, though they have been known to cause heartburn and indigestion.

The Falcons are getting approximately $10 million richer today, thanks to their decision to designate Desmond Trufant a “post-June 1 cut.” What do they do with all that extra cheddar? The Falcoholic himself had some thoughts.

Now that they’re flush with cap space, the Falcons may elect to make some additions to the roster before the season begins. If the Falcons do decide to invest in an additional free agent, and that free agent happens to be a safety, what are their best options? And no, giving Julio a raise and having him play both ways is not an option.

3rd year WR Calvin Ridley has managed to rack up 17 touchdowns in only 29 games as a professional. That, folks, is fantasy gold. But where do you take Ridley? Adnan Ikic answered that question for us yesterday. Thanks, Adnan.

Speaking of Adnan, he was David Walker’s latest victim guest in our running “get to know our writer” series. There were laughs, tears, and some poorly delivered dad jokes. You should check it out. Immediately.

That’s all for today, Falcoholics. Tune in again tomorrow to see if Dave Choate still has an unhealthy obsession with brown liquor and gas station chicken wings.
