The Atlanta Falcons are looking to turn things around this year after an awful performance in 2013. With organized team activities about to kick off, let's go ahead and look at the five biggest rumors surrounding the organization.
Falcons owner Arthur Blank is preparing efforts for his new .2 billion sports venue that will eventually be introduced to the city of Atlanta. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones praises Blanks' efforts for taking a risk at such a big project, since he recently went through the same process in Dallas.
Several former Falcons standout players are still sitting around in the free agent market jobless, and apparently the Dirty Birds have no interest in bringing them back to Atlanta. It's hard to believe that CB Asante Samuel, CB Dunta Robinson, LB Stephen Nicholas and OT Tyson Clabo have not yet found new homes in the NFL.
The Falcons are working out a number of undrafted rookie tight ends, but rumor has it that former Packers TE Jermichael Finley may be on Atlanta's radar. He would be a great option, if they can get him for cheap. Finley, 27, is an excellent athlete, but has dealt with numerous injuries throughout his short career in Green Bay.
The Falcons were showing interest in free agent WR Greg Little, but Oakland made the move to snag up the former Browns receiver before they could get their hands on him. Santonio Holmes has yet to be signed and now there are some rumors that Atlanta may be interested in the former Super Bowl champion wideout.
Atlanta's first round pick Jake Matthews supposedly shined in the team's rookie minicamp. The former Texas A&M Aggie was the No. 6 overall pick in this year's draft and will be looking to protect QB Matt Ryan when the season kicks off. The Falcons look to have found their long-term option at offensive tackle.
