The Atlanta Falcons lost the 12th most snaps in the NFL this offseason according to Over the Cap. Without much cap space available to work with Terry Fontenot, this new staff needed to get creative to fill the holes.
We got our first look at the rookies this past weekend as the Atlanta Falcons held their rookie minicamps. With only a handful of players available to take the field, there isn’t too much to be gleaned from the initial activities, however.
There will be several more phases of the offseason for the Atlanta Falcons starting with phase two this week which includes more on-field work at a walk-through pace. Phase three will step the intensity a bit more and finally mandatory minicamps run June eighth to tenth.
Training camp is a little more than two months away with the entire Atlanta Falcons team expected to report by the end of July. There are plenty of question marks on this roster on both sides of the ball. While there will continue to be cuts and signings to this team as the coaching staff and front office tweak the roster the spots that are up for grabs are well known.
The Atlanta Falcons will have at least seven new starters in 2021
We all know Mike Davis and Kyle Pitts will take over their respective positions but there are plenty of questions about how the offensive line, safety, and corner groups will shake out.
