Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! It’s a brand new day, full of empty promises, fried food, and brown liquor! Go ahead, take a seat. We don’t bite. And don’t mind the mess—we don’t clean much. We have good news: It appears there may actually be an NFL season. That is, they are going to really attempt to make it happen. Huzzah!

Our links are neither food grade nor safe for human consumption. Do not eat them. We repeat: Do. Not. Eat. Them.

It appears there may not be a preseason. That’s a pretty big concession by the NFL, but they are determined to get the ball rolling, and it’s time to do or die. Daily COVID-19 testing is likely to be an integral part of the NFL’s plans for the 2020 season as well.

The Falcons managed to sign their entire rookie class yesterday. It was inevitable, but it feels good to get it done. If rookies are able to report this week as scheduled, every member of the Falcons’ 2020 draft class will be there.

Kevin Knight’s profile of tight end Hayden Hurst is definitely worth a read. And speaking of Hurst, what’s the over/under on his touchdown total in 2020? The Falcons desperately need their investment in Hurst to pay off in 2020, and there are plenty of reasons to think it will.

The Falcons already have a metric ton of cap space committed in 2021, but we broke down why that may not be the end of the world.

Go forth, Falcoholics. Tuesday ain’t got nothin’ on you.
