Happy Tuesday, Falcoholics! It’s a brand new day. Teams are busy tweaking their rosters and spraying their players with disinfectant.

Our links are dry aged to perfection and doused in sea salt and extra virgin olive oil before we pan fry them. Yum!

Money Money Money

Forbes recently took a look at the most valuable professional sports franchises. The Falcons ranked 31st this season. Compared to what he paid for the franchise in 2002, Arthur Blank’s investment has increased in value substantially. Good for him.

Cornerback corps gets some help

The Falcons officially added an established veteran to their cornerback corps Monday. Darqueze Dennard brings sorely needed experience to a young group that lacks it. We knew there would be some rockiness as the team transitioned to life after Desmond Trufant’s departure, but Dennard will make that process a little smoother.

Assembling a roster

Composing a roster will be a tall task for the coaching staff as they try to adapt to the challenges presented by playing professional football during a pandemic. Dave Choate wonders if teams will look to carry more wide receivers and cornerbacks. It’s a question worth considering.

Matt Schaub

It’s been nearly two decades since Matt Schaub first joined the Falcons. And in spite of his age, Schaub is still a solid backup. Kevin Knight latest player profile centered on Schaub. Give it a read. Immediately.
