The Atlanta Falcons are entering a critical offseason for the future of their franchise. With head coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff both firmly on the hot seat looking ahead to the 2020 season, the Falcons know that they have to get back into the playoffs.
With that in mind, the team went out and quickly signed star running back Todd Gurley following his release from the Los Angeles Rams. They also are holding on to Matt Ryan and Julio Jones for another, barring a last-second major change of mind.
At the end of the 2019 season, the Falcons began showing that they could win football games. However, they have moved on from some key defensive players. Vic Beasley, Desmond Trufant, and De’Vondre Campbell are all gone.
Also, the Falcons lost talented tight end Austin Hooper to the Cleveland Browns in free agency. They replaced him by acquiring Hayden Hurst from the Baltimore Ravens via trade.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at four way-too-early bold predictions for the new-look Atlanta offense.
