Falcons’ decision to retain Armstong, Cox, Robiskie was genius — John Buhler of Atlanta All Day

"Rather than bringing in an entirely new coaching staff, Quinn elected to keep three coaches from the old regime in Flowery Branch.  Quinn chose wisely as I would have kept the same three coaches on staff that he did: Special Teams Coordinator Keith Armstrong, Defensive Line Coach Bryan Cox, and Wide Receivers Coach Terry Robiskie."

Grady Jarrett, Bryan Cox form strong bond already — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com

"Defensive line coach Bryan Cox gained widespread popularity during last summer’s HBO Hard Knocks documentary series, as his distinct sense of humor and abrasive teaching style resonated with the audience. Fifth round draft pick Grady Jarrett, who joined the Falcons well-aware of Cox’s disposition, is now getting a first-hand taste of what it’s like to play for the stern mentor."

Potential Falcons’ target claimed by Buccaneers — Pat Yasinskas of ESPN

"Swearinger will get a chance to compete for a starting safety job along withBradley McDougald, Major Wright and Chris Conte. Greene is expected to be a backup linebacker and a regular on special teams."
