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 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.

Falcons' Kemal Ishmael: Will play outside linebacker in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ishmael (shoulder) will play outside linebacker exclusively in the spring, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Ishmael was listed as a free safety on last year's depth chart, but with the Falcons releasing Philip Wheeler and Vic Beasley being more of a pass rusher, they are looking to Ishmael to fill a more traditional strong-side linebacker role. He recorded 52 combined tackles while playing only 27.9 percent of Atlanta's defensive snaps in 13 games last season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury, so the Falcons will be hoping he can successfully bring his tackling abilities from safety to linebacker in the coming months.

Falcons' Tevin Coleman: Not mentioned as injury concern
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn did not mention Coleman (ankle) when discussing players with injury restrictions at the Falcons' voluntary offseason program, Matt Winkeljohn of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "There's a couple guys ... (who) are going to be limited as far as the offseason goes. They're all participating in some fashion," Quinn explained. "Tru, Claiborne and Shelby are all participating in some fashion with workouts and rehab. Offensively, Julio Jones would be the one in that spot."

Coleman's ankle injury in the Super Bowl appeared somewhat serious, but he didn't need surgery and there's been nothing to suggest it's a long-term concern. Quinn's comments support the notion that the 24-year-old running back is back to full health for the start of the Falcons' offseason program. Coleman will reprise his role as a valued complement to Devonta Freeman, who hopes to secure an extension prior to the start of the final season of his rookie contract. As a key part of the high-powered Atlanta offense even when Freeman is healthy, Coleman may be the most valuable No. 2 running back in the league.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Present for offseason program but limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) is participating in the Falcons' voluntary offseason program in a limited fashion, with the expectation he'll be back to full strength for training camp, Matt Winkeljohn of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Still rehabbing from February surgery to remove a bunion, Jones has been walking around the team facility without a noticeable limp. His status as a limited participant likely will stretch beyond April workouts and into May, but he should be a full go for the start of training camp in late July, or possibly even for mandatory minicamp in mid-to-late June. His surgery came with an expected rehab timetable of four-to-five months.

Falcons' Taylor Gabriel: Reports to offseason workouts sans contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel, a restricted free agent, reported to the Falcons' offseason workout program without signing his contract tender, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Gabriel was given a second-round tender worth $2.746 million, an offer sheet unlikely to be matched by another team. He's likely holding off in an attempt to work out a long-term deal before Friday's deadline. Fortunately for the Falcons, Gabriel reporting to workouts without a contract in hand is a classy and team-friendly move that can only help Gabriel's own case in landing a multi-year commitment.
