Until the lockout comes to an end, NFL players are banned from practicing inside the team’s facilities. As for the Atlanta Falcons, they’re taking the same approach numerous teams are this offseason by having their players organize team practices–which happened for the first time on Monday.
According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Falcons started began their first offseason workouts on Monday without coaches. Organized by linebacker Coy Wire and right tackle Tyson Clabo, the Falcons had 30 of their players participate in Monday’s workouts and hope the rest of the players will soon join them.
Hopefully, the Falcons can get full participation in these workouts and gain an advantage this offseason over the other 31 teams–especially after finishing with the best record in the NFC during the regular season.
