Happy Friday, folks. Somebody told me if you slam the links after some salt and polish ‘em off with a lime they go down nice and smooth. Enjoy.
Falcons sign wide receiver Penny Hart
WR Penny Hart, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks and Georgia State Panthers, is now a Falcon. Wide receiver was definitely one of the Falcons’ post-draft needs, so Atlanta signed the speedy wideout to a one-year deal. and With his experience on offense and special teams, he has a strong chance to make the final 53.
In a corresponding move, the Falcons released defensive back John Reid.
Scouting director Anthony Robinson heads to Tennessee
After a long career in Atlanta that started as a scouting assistant in 2008, Scouting Director Anthony Robinson has been hired by Tennessee as its assistant GM. Given his role with the Falcons, Robinson was a key part of the recent draft haul, one which included the selection of running back Bijan Robinson eighth overall, and potential late-round steal cornerback Clark Phillips III.
So how are the writers here at the Ol’ Falcoholic feeling after the 2023 NFL Draft? Sources say, prettayyyy, prettayyy, pretty good. The post-draft power rankings from other outlets were a bit all over the place, which confirms that power rankings are indeed pixie dust nonsense (but fun to rage/good time read).
