Full depth chart breakdown and analysis at edge player — Scott Carasik of Bleacher Report

"Edge player was the biggest spot that the Atlanta Falconsneeded to improve during the 2015 offseason. In 2014, the Falcons were trotting out players at weak-side end and strong-side linebacker like Prince Shembo, Kroy Biermann, Jonathan Massaquoi and an aging Osi Umenyiora."

Falcons have $10.7 million in dead money — Matthew Chambers of The Falcoholic

"The NFL’s cap space continues to skyrocket, and is a pretty impressive $143.28 million. The Atlanta Falcons have had some turnover this offseason under new head coach Dan Quinn, and according to Over The Cap, have $10.713 million dedicated to players that will not play for the team (except for Ricardo Allen)."

Is Julio Jones the NFL’s most dangerous player? — Brian Jones of 247Sports.com

"In the NFL, there are good players, great players and players that are flat out dangerous. Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers is a good example of a dangerous player because he has the ability to score at will. Ndamukung Suh is another example as he causes a ton of havoc against offensive linemen, quarterbacks and running backs."

#AskAndrew Falcons Mailbag — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com

"At present, there’s no reason to be concerned about losing him to free agency or a trade. Jones is committed to the Falcons and, as he mentioned at minicamp, doesn’t plan on holding out. We should have a better idea of what to expect when Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant ink their respective extensions."
