If you’ve been a regular of our website over the last couple of weeks, you’ve probably read an article or two about former Atlanta Falcons right guard Kynan Forney. Forney made news recently for his private workouts with right guard Chris Lindstrom who was the 14th overall selection by the Falcons in the 2019 NFL Draft.
On Wednesday night, Forney stopped by The Falcoholic Live to talk about his private workouts with both Kaleb McGary and Chris Lindstrom, and why Falcons fans should feel optimistic about the future of the team’s offensive line.
Forney is one of the best right guards in franchise history, playing with the team from 2001-2007. To see him working out with the future of the Falcons on the right side of the offensive line is a welcomed sight.
“One thing as far as both of them are concerned is I’ve noticed that they’re not afraid to work,” Forney said on The Falcoholic Live. “They’re not afraid to ask question. Sometimes you get a lot of young guys who feel like they know it all. Sometimes with first-round picks you know, they come in with a lot of prestige and a lot more money, maybe they’re not willing to work as hard. With these two, no — that’s out the door. They don’t have to seek me out, they don’t have to get with me to take their game further. They don’t have to, but they are.”
Thanks to @KalebMcgary for coming by and allowing me to show him a few things to make his job easier cuz it’s already tough enough! @Big_Fish75 thanks for the recommendation— Kynan Forney (@KForney65) July 23, 2020

Two weeks ago, Forney went into detail about his private workouts with Chris Lindstrom, who he said is very humble, strong and solid in his technique. Since then, Kaleb McGary heard positive things about their workouts and on Tuesday began working out with 9-year NFL veteran.
“I’m trying to help him to make his job easier, he’s already a big strong dude — he looks way better than he did last year,” Forney said. “He’s 330 lbs with some abs, maybe not bricked-up but his stuff isn’t looking like mine, he’s a good looking 330 lbs.”
You can hear the rest of our conversation with Kynan Forney in the video above. The Falcoholic Live is streamed live on Youtube every week hosted by The Falcoholic staff writer Kevin Knight. Forney has already agreed to join us in the future to talk more about the team, so keep an eye out for that!
