Atlanta Falcons top five classiest players of all-time

1 of 5

An Atlanta Falcons top five list can be constructed in many different categories of football, from player productivity (touchdowns, rushing, passing and receiving yards) to coaching success (wins and losses).

One area of interest when looking at the Atlanta Falcons player history is how a player conducts himself both on and off the field.

Let’s look at the Atlanta Falcons top five players in team history who personify class both on and off the field, in no specific order.

Warrick Dunn

Dunn signed with the Falcons as a free agent in 2002 and played with the team until 2007. He had three 1,000 yard rushing seasons with 30 rushing touchdowns and six receiving touchdowns.

Dunn was the epitome of class and leadership both on and off the field. Aside from his prolific career, what he has accomplished off the field is even more impressive.

His ‘Home for the Holidays’ foundation that he started focuses on providing single parents raising children with home furnishings and downpayment assistance since 1997.

Loved by teammates past and present, coaches and the media, he is easily one of the nicest humans to ever play in the NFL. He will always be an all-time fan favorite for his accomplishments on the gridiron, and more importantly, what he has provided for so many people in need.
