If it’s Thursday morning, it means that a fresh batch of pipin’ hot links are ready for your perusal. Dive in to today’s edition of Falcoholinks.

Taking stock

Tight end Luke Stocker was released earlier in the offseason, but the Falcons are reportedly mulling over the prospect of bringing him back for a second go-round. Ian Rapoport reports that Stocker visited the Falcons, and with some depth issues at the TE position, it may make sense to bring him back into the fold.

Roster holes

The Falcons appear pretty well set when it comes to their projected starters, but as is the way of the NFL, you can never have too much depth. There are a few position areas where Atlanta may be well-suited to take a look at the free agent market.

Strange times ahead

With the Pac-12, Big Ten, and MAC announcing that they would postpone all athletics until potentially the spring, the downstream impact on the NFL is blindingly apparent. There will be opt-outs, there will be overlap with traditional draft prep time, and things are just going to get all-around weird.

A new episode of The Falcoholic Podcast

After a bit of a vacation, yesterday The Falcoholic Podcast returned with a new episode! The gang examined the offseason through the ever-present lens of COVID-19, and why Dan Quinn is just the coach to navigate this season.

Give the episode a listen right here.
