Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Wraps up outstanding minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ridley has drawn considerable praise regarding his performance in OTAs and minicamp, as head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday that he is very impressed with the rookie's football IQ, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Ridley's performance in offseason workouts has been so strong to this point, that a dropped pass during 11-on-11 drills Wednesday stunned observers at Flowery Branch. Granted, Falcons players have yet to don pads during practice, but all early indications signal a promising debut campaign for the 23-year-old Ridley. The rookie indicated after Atlanta's three-day minicamp that he intends to be in attendance for a Matt Ryan-led passing camp in July.

Falcons' Jack Crawford: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crawford (biceps) worked out in position drills at Falcons minicamp Wednesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

A torn bicep cost Crawford the majority of the 2017 season, as the 29-year-old was placed on the injured reserve shortly after a Week 4 loss to Buffalo. Crawford's full participation in practice is a welcomed sight, with the veteran being an important rotational player on the defensive interior for the Falcons. He registered zero sacks and just five tackles on 101 defensive snaps last season, but during his final two years in Dallas, Crawford tallied 7.5 sacks and 46 tackles across 32 games.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (toe) was inactive for minicamp Wednesday with what head coach Dan Quinn described as a toe injury, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The sixth-round selection from Yale has been extremely impressive on special teams coverage to this point, but was sidelined with injury during the second session of Falcons minicamp. Oluokun received a medical redshirt in 2015, but was for the most part very durable in his Ivy League career, playing in 39 of the Bulldogs' 40 games during 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017.

Falcons' Terrence Magee: Inks deal with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Magee signed a contract with the Falcons on Wednesday.

Magee has a history with the Falcons, having signed and been released by the club once already this offseason and another time during the 2017 campaign. He will attempt to win a roster spot in training camp, but will likely be relegated to special-teams work if he cracks the 53-man unit.

Falcons' Russell Gage: Fully healthy for minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gage (hamstring) returned as a full participant for the start of Falcons minicamp Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Gage was pulled from Falcons OTAs last week after tweaking a muscle, but as head coach Dan Quinn expected, the rookie quickly recovered and is now partaking in practice with the rest of the active roster. Entering the league as a sixth-round draft pick, the versatile Gage will be competing for a spot on specials teams coverage, with an outside shot of earning the No. 4 receiver spot if he can outperform incumbent Justin Hardy in camp.
