Senior Bowl preview
The 2022 Senior Bowl takes place this Saturday, February 5.
Matt Gono released
Offensive lineman Matt Gono has been an intriguing prospect since Atlanta signed him as an undrafted free agent after the 2018 NFL Draft. While he appeared in 21 games with four starts, his injury in 2021 — a season where he would factor into the competition at right tackle — derailed the team’s plans for him. As such, the Falcons have released Gono to give him a head start on free agency.
Big decisions looming
As the Falcons still seek to free up as much cash as possible, they have some big decisions on the docket — particularly regarding the contracts of quarterback Matt Ryan and defensive lineman Grady Jarrett.
