Kevin Knight kicked off a new series yesterday with an in-depth profile of recent free agent addition Dante Fowler. (Knight plans to do a deep dive on every projected Falcons starter as part of his “Falcons player profile” series. Definitely worth keeping an eye out.)

Our latest podcast is a can’t-miss in that it featured a couple of experts who know a lot about COVID-19 and were generous enough to offer their thoughts about how it could impact the NFL. The fact is that none of us know whether an NFL season is really in the cards. But if it does move forward, there will need to be a variety of precautionary measures in place and buy in from the coaching staff, owners, and players.
