Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! Players are settling into their routines at Falcons training camp and we are less than 30 days removed from Week 1 of the regular season. Something resembling a training camp buzz has made an appearance. We’re inclined to acknowledge the slim but meaningful possibility this all works out. What a time to be alive.

Did you know links are soaked overnight in an acidic marinade?

What’s Keanu Neal’s interception baseline in 2020? Should you take the over or the under? Adnan Ikic broke down the possibilities for us. Speaking of defensive backs, let’s talk about J.J. Wilcox. Kevin Knight’s player profile of Wilcox is definitely worth a read.

Former Falcons RB Jason Wright just got a pretty important job with the Washington Football Team. It’s a historic hire and a welcome piece of good news about a Falcons alum.

The Falcons were confident about their ability to host fans at home games until yesterday, when they announced that their September home slate will not include fans. This is a smart decision and the best path forward.

The Falcons desperately need Kaleb McGary to take some big steps forward in 2020. And if he’s going to do that, he’ll need to learn some important lessons from a rocky rookie campaign in 2019.

The Falcons cut Danny Etling. Etling has been the odd man out in the quarterback room since Benkert got healthy, and if we’re being honest, the writing was already on the wall headed into training camp.
