  • Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Notches 13 more tackles

    Oluokun recorded 13 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

    Oluokun was a tackling machine this season, leading the NFL with 192 total stops during the 2021 campaign. He finished the year with 12 games with at least 10 tackles -- including four straight to end the season. He also recorded three interceptions, two sacks and one forced fumble across 17 appearances. The 2018 sixth-round pick is set to be a free agent this offseason and will likely garner plenty of interest from numerous teams after taking the league by storm.

  • Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Registers seven stops in finale

    Oluokun collected seven tackles (four solo) and one QB hit during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Oluokun was a late addition to the NFC's Pro Bowl ballot, and one has to wonder why the 25-year-old wasn't included sooner. Though Oluokun ultimately was not given the nod for the annual distinction, he did break out with a career season consisting of a team-high 117 tackles, three sacks, four forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a pair of interceptions. The Falcons may have found a defensive cornerstone in the Yale standout, who blossomed into an all-around contributor during his first full season as a starter. The 2018 sixth-round pick enters his final year under contract as the Falcons prepare to usher in a new general manager.
