Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Tuesday, July 6

LIIINKS

NFL: Altanta Falcons OTA Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve got links a day late, because Independence Day and all that. Enjoy a Tuesday edition of Falcoholinks as you get your day started.

Over/Unders

In 2018, defensive back Damontae Kazee tied for the NFL lead for interceptions with seven — and while the secondary may not currently possess that level of ballhawking talent, under Dean Pees’ tutelage and scheme they should tally some interceptions.

But how many? That’s what we’re evaluating. In the latest edition of our Over/Under series, we examine the likelihood of the Falcons’ interception leader hitting 3.5 picks.

Kyle Pitts #content

Kyle Pitts should be a focal point in Atlanta’s offense in 2021; so what can we reasonably expect for his fantasy production in his rookie season?

Veterans on the bubble

The Falcons have a number of veterans who are entering training camp on the roster bubble. You can likely guess one defensive tackle on this list — but who else needs a solid camp to crack the final roster?

Atlanta jersey history

We’ve made it to Nos. 16 - 20 on the list of the best players to wear a specific number in Atlanta. We’ve seen a solid mix of Falcons, Braves, Dream, Hawks, and even Thrashers players. So who lands at 16 - 20?

Forgotten Falcons

Our Forgotten Falcons offseason series rolled along over the weekend, where we checked out the Falcons career of one of the first quarterbacks to helm a winning team in Atlanta, and one of Atlanta’s most consistently productive pass rushers in recent history.
