Dirty Bird Daily: Latest Atlanta Falcons News


Good morning, Atlanta Falcons fans. As you start your Tuesday, sip your morning coffee and get up to date with everything going on in the world of the Falcons. Let’s get started.

Julio Jones, Falcons haven’t talked extension — Vaughn McClure of ESPN

"There have been no contract extension talks between the Atlanta Falcons and Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones’ camp, a league source told ESPN on Monday."

Eagles preview Falcons clash — Ian McCure of 247Sports.com

"Atlanta has a franchise quarterback, more than a lot of NFL teams (including the Eagles) can say. Matt Ryan is quietly in that second or third tier of QBs — he completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 4,694 yards with 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last year."

Can Ryan-Quinn duo win Super Bowls? — John Buhler of ATL All Day

"For a team to win a Super Bowl in this era of the NFL, a team will need two undisputed leaders in its organization.  I’m talking about leadership emanating from under center at the quarterback position and on the sideline from the man calling all the shots, the head coach."

Training camp battles to watch — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com

"The reason is two-fold. For starters, the coaching turnover has forced veterans to once again prove their worth. Those who felt comfortable in the previous regime may not feel the same way now, and based on the perfect attendance at OTAs, the incumbents understand they aren’t entitled to their old jobs."
