Falcons' Austin Hooper: Optimistic about staff overhaul

Hooper said Wednesday that he looks forward to working with new tight ends coach Mike Mularkey in 2019, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Fresh off his first career Pro Bowl season, Hooper's prospects remain bright heading into 2019 with Mularkey joining the coaching staff. Now studying under a former NFL tight end as well as someone with 14 combined years of head coach and offensive coordinator experience, Hooper looks primed to excel in his fourth NFL campaign. The 24-year-old turned in a 71-reception, 660-yard campaign in 2018 after averaging 34 catches and 398.5 yards per season between 2016 and 2017.
