It’s Sunday — not an NFL Sunday unfortunately, although today is of course the day of WrestleMania 32. Which Falcons players would make for good wrestlers? I’d personally love to see Roddy White vs. Kyle Shanahan with a loser leaves Atlanta stipulation, although the Falcons missed a trick by releasing White earlier this offseason.
How about an elimination tag team match between the defensive and offensive linemen? Who would win that battle? Dan Quinn vs. Mike Smith with Arthur Blank as special referee? Seriously, why am I not a booker?
Anyway, WrestleMania can wait for tonight. For now, sit back and enjoy these Atlanta Falcons articles from around the internet.
Who is on the Falcons roster bubble after free agency? — Dave Choate of The Falcoholic
The Falcons were busy in free agency, with the notable signings in center Alex Mack, defensive lineman Derrick Shelby, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw. How do these moves affect the roster? Which players could now be considered on the bubble of the roster?
2016 NFL Mock Draft: Falcons steal Sheldon Rankins — Dan Schmelzer of NFL Spin Zone
In a recent mock draft by our friends at NFL Spin Zone, defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins landed in Atlanta. Is it a pressing position of need? No. Does it matter? No — because Rankins could be the best player available. Taking advantage of a talented group of defensive linemen is important as there may not be the same level of talent in future drafts. You can never have too many big guys.
Identifying the possible sleepers in the draft — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com
A lot of talk at this time of year is on the first 32 picks of the draft (or 31 this year), but the best teams find some of their best players on day two and three. Seattle built their defense with many later-round hits. Quarterback Russell Wilson himself was a third-round selection which you would find hard to believe now. Richard Sherman was a fifth-rounder. Can the Falcons find some mid-round gems? They’re without a fifth and sixth round pick (barring a trade) but doing so would be huge for Dan Quinn’s team.
