Dirty Bird Daily: Latest Atlanta Falcons News


Good morning, Atlanta Falcons fans. It’s Friday at last, so let’s get straight into today’s news and links with the Dirty Bird Daily.

This sleeping giant will emerge for Falcons in 2015 — FOX Sports

"To say that the Atlanta Falcons have quite a bit of young talent would be a pretty big understatement. It actually may even slip past you that Julio Jones is even just 26 at this point. With that said, Jones is probably the furthest thing from a “sleeping giant.”"

Fantasy Outlook: Atlanta Falcons — Tom Woods of FantasyPros.com

"As it turned out, Cam Newtonand the Carolina Panthers won the race for the South. But had it been decided on fantasy points alone, Mike Smith would have actually been coaching on Wild Card Weekend."

Falcons will select 32nd overall on April 28, 2016 — James Rael of The Falcoholic

"Yes, I’m predicting multiple Super Bowl victories in the next decade or so, starting with the upcoming season. A guy can dream, right? But watch, I’ll be right. Then I’ll flaunt this post and Dave will have to follow my repeated recommendation to fire Alex Welch."

“General sense” Falcons can get Julio deal done before camp — Josh Alper of NBCSports.com

"Wednesday saw two wide receivers cash in with big new contracts, which shifts the attention to a couple of other premier wideouts who are coming to the end of their current deals."

Falcons training camp: 5 players who can surprise — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com

"Every year, several Falcons who weren’t expected to stand out have unexpectedly strong summers. Paul Worrilow did just that in 2013 and quickly won a starting job; Bernard Reedy, a nimble wide receiver, dazzled fans last August by catching a bunch of highlight reel touchdowns — several of which came during Friday Night Lights."
