Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Expected back for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clayborn (biceps) is expected to be recovered in time for training camp, Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Clayborn tore his biceps during the Falcons' divisional-round matchup with the Seahawks and needed over four months of rehab this offseason. Considering the timing of his injury was in mid January, a return for training camp always seemed more likely than not anyway.

Falcons' Derrick Shelby: Eyeing training camp return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shelby (calf) is expected to be recovered in time for training camp, Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Shelby ended the 2016 season on injured reserve due to a calf injury. Unfortunately for him, he may return to a reserve role at defensive tackle with offseason acquisition Dontari Poe now in town.

Falcons' Alex Mack: Expected to return for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mack (fibula) is expected to be recovered in time for training camp, Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Mack, who played through a fractured left fibula in Super Bowl LI, surprisingly didn't require any sort of surgery this offseason. He was presumably prescribed plenty of rest instead, likely allowing Ben Garland the opportunity to serve as the team's No. 1 center throughout spring practices. However, Mack has no chance of being supplanted on the depth chart and will instantly assume the starting job as soon as he's cleared to take the field.

Falcons' Jake Matthews: Falcons pick up fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews had his fifth-year option exercised by the Falcons on Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Matthews was a first-round pick in 2014, and the picked-up option will keep him in Atlanta through the 2018 season. The tackle was an intricate part of a Falcons offense that averaged 415.8 total yards per game in 2016, good for second best in the NFL. However, Atlanta did surrender 2.4 quarterback sacks per game last season, which ranks bottom-ten in the NFL, so Matthews and the rest of the offensive line will look to sure up their pass protection this coming season.

Falcons' Taylor Gabriel: Signs contract tender with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel signed his contract tender with the Falcons on Saturday, Kelsey Conway of AtlantaFalcons.com reports.

Gabriel reported to offseason workouts this past week without a solidified contract situation as a restricted free agent, while no other team offered to match his second-round tender worth $2.746 million in Atlanta. Having officially signed his tender with the Falcons, Gabriel will likely continue seeking a long-term deal given his good standing with the organization.
