  • Falcons' Deone Bucannon: Links up with Atlanta

    Bucannon has agreed to terms on a contract with the Falcons, William McFadden of the team's official site reports.

    Bucannon offers Atlanta's defense key depth as a versatile linebacker/safety hybrid with veteran experience. The 2014 first-round pick racked up 28 tackles (16 solo) across 14 combined games with the Giants and Buccaneers last season.

  • Falcons' Ito Smith: Training for 2020 season

    Smith (concussion/neck) has been taking part in offseason training in Houston and plans to return to Atlanta in the near future to work out with quarterback Matt Ryan and other skill-position players, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Smith's ability to take part in workouts without any reported limitations suggested he's gained full clearance from the concussion that sidelined him for the Falcons' final nine games of the past season. While Atlanta moved on from Devonta Freeman earlier in the offseason, the team brought in ex-Rams standout Todd Gurley to serve as its lead back. As a result, Smith will remain stuck in his familiar No. 2 role in 2020 if Gurley's chronic knee issues don't cost him too much time.

  • Falcons' Todd Gurley: Workload remains uncertain

    Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said that he won't be able to confirm what Gurley's workload will be until the running back can be evaluated in person, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports.

    Given that Gurley has still yet to take his physical with the Falcons as a result of the ongoing pandemic, Koetter was unwilling to guess at precisely how often he is expected to play. "He can do everything. He's an excellent runner, he's good in the pass game [and] he can protect," Koetter explained. "The main question no one seems to know is, 'What's his health status? What is his workload?'" Gurley accounted for a career-worst 1,064 scrimmage yards during 2019, causing many to attribute his reduced productivity to a report that indicated the presence of an arthritic component to his knee. Now heading back to the state of his college alma matter, Gurley's health remains a question mark as he begins a journey to revitalize his career within the Falcons' high-powered offense.

  • Falcons' Younghoe Koo: Expected to face competition

    Coach Dan Quinn said that the Falcons are hoping to add some competition for Koo at the kicker position, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

    While in-person workouts remain inconceivable for the time being, Koo is still going to have to prove himself during the lead-up to the regular season. The 25-year-old is currently the only kicker on the depth chart, but Quinn has remained adamant throughout the offseason that he is seeking competition at the position. Though Koo knocked down an impressive 23 of 26 field goals during his debut campaign in Atlanta, Quinn is wary of anointing his starter prematurely. Giorgio Tavecchio entered 2019 as the lone kicker on the roster, and proceeded to make just four of nine preseason field-goal attempts before being cut.
