Dirty Bird Daily: Latest Atlanta Falcons News


Good morning, Atlanta Falcons fans. Father’s Day is done for another year and it’s Monday morning, but never fear because there is plenty of Falcons content to read. Justin Hardy is embracing his role as a student, and what can we expect from fellow rookie Vic Beasley in year one?

Justin Hardy embracing role as student — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com

"If you were a young wide receiver just breaking into the NFL, it’d be hard to imagine a better place to grow than Flowery Branch. For starters, you’d have talented, sharp and experienced teammates in Roddy White and Julio Jones to help you along. You’d have a premier WR coach in Terry Robiskie. And, of course, you’d have Matt Ryan, one of the top quarterbacks in the league today."

What should we expect from Vic Beasley year one? — John Buhler of ATL All Day

"The Atlanta Falcons drafted OLB Vic Beasley 8th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.  Though it took a while, Vic recently agreed to his rookie deal with the Falcons. Vic comes to Atlanta as a franchise pass rusher on a team that simply has not gotten after the quarterback since John Abraham left town after the 2012 season. What can Falcons fans expect out of Vic in year one?"

Father’s Day has bigger meaning for Falcons trio — Vaughn McClure of ESPN

"It was easy to understand the Atlanta Falcons rookie offensive tackle’s display of emotions as he stood after practice last week and reminisced about his late father, John."

Jake Matthews excited about new scheme — James Rael of The Falcoholic

"Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman Jake Matthews is responsible for keeping Matt Ryan off the ground. That’s why the Falcons drafted him in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He will do whatever it takes to accomplish that goal; it’s his purpose in life. And with new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan installing a zone blocking scheme, Matthews and the rest of the Falcons’ offensive linemen have had to adjust and learn at a quick pace this off-season."
