  • Falcons' Steven Means: Enjoys career year

    Means, who registered four tackles during Atlanta's 44-27 Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers, concluded the 2020 season with 38 tackles, six QB hits, three sacks and two forced fumbles over 16 game appearances. Means had never started more than four games in a season over his first five active professional campaigns with the Buccaneers, Ravens, Eagles and Falcons between 2013 and 2018.

  • Falcons' Steven Means: Back to full speed

    Means (hand) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Means played through this injury last week and handled his typical allotment of defensive snaps (63 percent).
