Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Monday, Feb 8

NFL: Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent possibilities

Historically, the Falcons haven’t been particularly active in the free agency period to address needs, but with a new regime in place we may see more signings and new faces in Atlanta.

One area that could be addressed is the offensive line, and in the latest in his video series, our Kevin Knight took a look at some of the OL names who the Falcons may bring in.

And as the Falcons new VP of player personnel Kyle Smith may have some Football Team names in mind that he could lobby for the team to bring in.

Holding on

The Falcons were a collapse machine in 2020, blowing a number of leads in at times comical fashion, but it wasn’t just last year. One game in particular stands out. The blown leads almost have an expectancy component to them now, and it’s why their singular focus under Arthur Smith has to be holding on to win games.
