Kevin Knight’s player profiles are like mini crescent roll hot dogs—you’ll never be able to consume just one in a single sitting because they’re just too darn tasty. Up next is rookie safety Jaylinn Hawkins, a versatile defender that would love to back up Keanu Neal in 2020.

For sale!

Are you someone that has about $20,000 in discretionary income and nothing to spend it on? Then look no further, because for about that much cheddar, you can be the proud owner of a 2016 NFC Championship player ring.

Safety Jamal Carter was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list, which is significant because now the Falcons have no one on that list. All bets are off once games start, but if the Falcons can continue to manage the various COVID-19 protocols they’ve put in place, it bodes well for the season’s ability to move forward next month.

Hayden Hurst

Shiny new TE1 Hayden Hurst will ideally score a touchdown or seven for the Falcons in 2020. But what’s his baseline? And should you take the over or the under? David Walker broke down the possibilities.

Go forth, Falcoholics. Seize the day.
